Delivery truck drivers and semi-truck drivers can be injured in auto accidents just like any other driver. When these drivers are injured while on-the-job, however, several unique issues are present. If the driver is injured in an auto accident that occurred while he or she was performing activities for his or her employee, the driver may be entitled to workers’ compensation. State workers’ compensation laws provide injured employees with compensation for things like medical bills and lost wages from the employer’s insurance company. Workers’ compensation is available for the injured employee regardless of who was at fault in the auto accident, but workers’ compensation laws also bar an injured employee from suing the employer following a work-related accident.
Workers’ compensation does not bar a driver who is injured in an auto accident while on-the-job from suing another third-party who may have been responsible for causing the accident.
