What Is Considered an On the Job Car Accident?

Typically, you qualify for workers' compensation in a car accident injury case if the incident occurred while you were performing your job duties. This means work commutes generally don't count; however, if you were asked to perform an errand by your employer along the commute and got into an accident, then you may qualify for workers' comp. The following common on the job driving scenarios would qualify for workers' comp:

  • Running an errand for your employer
  • Making a delivery
  • Transporting another employee
  • Traveling between job sites
  • Driving is your primary job function (e.g. commercial vehicle driver)
  • Travel is a major part of your work (e.g. traveling salesman)
  • Your employer pays you for your travel time to or from home

To find out whether your car crash counts as an on the job accident, consult with an attorney who specializes in personal injury law in Arizona.

Recovering Damages in a Civil Claim and a Workers' Comp Claim

There are many differences between civil claims (or third party claims) and workers' compensation claims – the main ones being how fault is established and what damages are involved. In a civil claim, the plaintiff, or claimant, has the onus of proving fault, whereas in a workers' comp claim, in most cases fault is irrelevant.

As for damages, workers' compensation generally provides payments for only medical bills and lost wages, while property damage and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, may be awarded in civil claims. However, if you receive compensation from both types of claims, the employer or their insurance company may file a lien against any compensation you receive in your civil claim, meaning a portion of the settlement from your civil claim may be used to reimburse your employer's workers' comp benefits.
