I was in an auto accident while at work. Who pays my bills?
If you are injured in an auto accident at work, you may have claims against both the workers’ compensation insurer, and against the insurer of the at-fault driver. Typically, workers’ compensation is primary, which means that workers’ compensation is responsible for paying first. Coordinating both claims and ensuring that you get all the benefits you are entitled to can be complicated. Make sure you retain a lawyer that can handle both your workers’ compensation claim and your car accident liability claim.
