More and more, workers are being forced to drive their own vehicles when performing during working hours in order to perform work activities and duties. However, less and less, employers are providing little or no protection for employees if they are involved in an accident.

This post is part eight of a nine part series discussing what you should know when driving your car during work. This installment will discuss what you are entitled to through other claims. (You can view previous posts in this series online here)

What other claims can I make?  What other benefits am I entitled to?  The answer to these questions is that “it depends”. It requires an extensive investigation to examine and evaluate potential claims against various persons/entitles. Benefits may be available under policies of insurance that provide coverage for persons/entities/businesses connected to the party(s) responsible for causing the accident.
It also requires an extensive investigation to examine and evaluate other claims that may be made under “other” policies of insurance that may provide benefits. Typically, this involves investigation of policies providing uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits. These types of coverages may be found in an individual’s policy of insurance or in an employer/business policy.  These polices can be complex and difficult to understand. Consulting an experienced attorney will ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
