Many people think of car accident injuries and work-related injuries as two separate categories: one occurs in your car, the other in your workplace. For millions of Americans, however, the vehicle and the workplace are often the same places. Commercial truck drivers, bus drivers, mail and package delivery service people, and salespeople are just a few of the workers who must drive as part of their jobs. When a car collision causes an injury to a worker who is driving, the accident may count as a work-related accident.
It’s important to understand when a car accident in NH might be considered to be work-related in order to ensure that you seek and receive all of the help with medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses to which you are entitled. If driving is part of your job and you are injured while driving for your job, you may be eligible for worker’s compensation payments. These payments may cover your medical bills and provide replacement money for lost wages so that you can continue to pay household bills while you recover.
Even if an injury from a car accident is not work-related, understanding your legal rights and options after a New Hampshire car crash occurs can help you hold accountable anyone whose negligence or reckless disregard for safety caused the accident. Distracted drivers, dangerous roads, or mechanical car failures caused by defective parts or a bad repair job may also play a role in any motor vehicle accident.
