If I’m injured while driving on the job, is that considered Workers’ Compensation or Personal Injury?
Many professions now require you to drive as part of your job. Whether it is delivering items (pizzas, packages, materials) or driving to a destination to make a sales call, perform a service, or meet with a client, your job may require that you drive.
So what happens if you are injured in an automobile accident due to some else’s negligence while driving for work? Is that considered a Workers’ Compensation (WC) case or a Personal Injury (PI) case? Well, often, it is both and is referred to as a “dual’ (WC and PI) claim.
