Workers’ Compensation And Work-Related Car Accidents 

On-the-job injuries are not always the result of accidents occurring at the location where you work. Many workers’ compensation claims involve injuries suffered by employees while off site, specifically while operating their own car or a company vehicle.

Since 1992, Skibiel Law has strived to maximize compensation for Jonesboro and Atlanta residents in work-related car and truck accidents.

Understanding The Risks. Knowing Your Rights.

For many Georgia-based professionals, operating their own car or driving a company vehicle is part of their responsibilities or their entire job. They understand that risk is involved, especially when driving a delivery truck, dump truck and other large vehicles. Most understand the need for extra safety precautions while on the job.

However, pre-emptive measures, along with training, experience and proper licensure can only go so far, especially if the vehicle is defective or another driver is negligent.

The Need To Pursue Third-Party Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident while “on duty” is not unlike any other motor vehicle accident. Immediate medical attention is the first step. From there, proactive legal help from a skilled and knowledgeable attorney is vital following a collision that puts you out of work.

Workers’ compensation claims require employers to provide benefits, even if the employee was at fault. In turn, workers cannot sue employers for negligence. However, many serious and fatal work-related vehicle accidents involve a third party responsible for the accident. In these cases, we explore personal injury and wrongful death claims against motorists, vehicle manufacturers and other parties.

Client Testimonials

Mark was very knowledgeable and kept me informed with my case. He wasn’t intimidated with the large law firm. I know for a fact that without his expertise and diligent work ethic my settlement wouldn’t have reached the amount it did. He worked far beyond what I expected, meeting with the company doctor, therapist, and insurance representatives. HAVE A TALK WITH HIM ITS FREE!!!!!

Mark takes the time to get to know you as a person, not just as a case. He’s an attorney you can trust to keep you informed on every aspect of the case. I received all info about the case as soon as he did, and Mark carefully answered every question that I asked. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is in need of an honest attorney.

When my adjuster refused to pay for lost wages and for prescriptions, I felt the need to hire an attorney. After a brief consultation, I hired Mark. Within days, I saw results in my case. Everything that happened in my case went exactly as he told me it would happen in our initial consultation. When we went to the hearing, it seemed very one-sided and we won “hands down.” From start to finish, my case lasted less than nine months. My lost wages were recovered, and a sizeable settlement as well. Kudos Mark.

Mark explained, in detail, how the law would apply to my case and assured me it would take some time for me to accomplish my goal. During my case Mark and his staff kept my wife and me informed and updated. Every time my wife or I called Mark’s office we were able to get a response from either him or his staff. When we settled my case, it was more than I ever expected. Mark and his staff were professional in handling my claim. My experience with Mark and his office was wonderful!
