Can I claim workers’ compensation if I am involved in a car accident?
Car accidents are often at risk of falling into the gray areas of workers’ compensation law. Injuries that are sustained while commuting to and from work are not considered work-related, and will not grant you access to workers’ compensation benefits. When your job duties entail driving between multiple job sites or visiting clients however, injuries sustained in a car accident while performing your job duties will be eligible for benefits.
