You were going about your normal day. You were in your work vehicle on your way to a job site or already on site when, BAM, you were involved in an auto accident. In Louisiana, those who suffer injuries in work-related motor vehicle accidents may have legal recourse.
Think that workers’ compensation is all to which you may be entitled? Think again. Just because you were hurt while on the job does not mean that filing a workers’ compensation claim is the only way in which you can seek relief. Under certain circumstances, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the party deemed responsible for your losses.
Filing a personal injury claim can be simple and yet fairly complex. Filling out the forms and submitting the claim in court may not be very hard, but the gathering of evidence to prove your case and presenting your case may be.
