Injured as a Passenger in a Work Vehicle Accident? This is What You Can Do

work vehicle accidentWhen a motor vehicle accident in a work vehicle happens, it’s likely both the driver and passenger will be injured. It’s important to note that passengers in a work vehicle have options to recover compensation after the collision. Here are some things to keep in mind.

Seek Medical Attention

It is important to seek medical attention after any accident, and to continue medical care for the injuries sustained in the accident. If there are medical records describing the extent of the injury, they can be extremely helpful in linking the injury to the accident.

Gather Evidence

After an accident, it’s important to gather evidence that holds the at-fault party liable for any damages. It’s wise to collect the following pieces of evidence:

  • Photographs of any injuries and damaged property
  • Police report filed at the time of the accident

If there were any witnesses who can describe the accident or what happened leading up to it, it’s a good idea to speak with them.

Workers’ Compensation

Usually when there is a passenger in a work vehicle, chances are they both work for the same company. PA Workers’ Compensation Law is applied to all work-related vehicle accidents for employees of the company.

Consult With a Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, it may be in the best interest of the injured individual to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help them file a personal injury claim.
