Many workers at risk of being injured in on-the-job car accidents

Suffering an injury while at work can be a stressful and scary experience. While such an incident can happen under a multitude of scenarios, those who must operate a motor vehicle as part of their job may face unique hazards, especially with an ever-increasing amount of traffic out on Georgia roads every day. Those who suffer injuries in on-the-job car accidents may be eligible to receive financial relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, but they might be uncertain how best to navigate the process.

A recent report of work-related car accidents in another state revealed that companies have paid out as much as $173 million in claims pertaining to similar incidents over the past five years alone. Since the safety and health of workers is a top priority, companies are constantly working on ways to reduce the odds of an accident, such as providing defensive driving training. Since studies suggest that more than 40 percent of on-the-job car accidents involve workers with less than one year of experience, training may be essential.

Unfortunately, even the best training might not prevent every collision, as the safety of those who operate a vehicle as part of their job also rests in the hands of other drivers. There may be a multitude of individuals who drive a vehicle for work. However, the study indicates that certain professions are at higher risk of being involved in such an incident, such as health care workers, commercial vehicle drivers, law enforcement agents and automobile mechanics.

On-the-job car accidents can have disastrous results, and those who suffer serious injuries in such a collision may wish to know more about their options for financial relief. Following a collision, a person could choose to consult with an attorney for guidance in pursuing relief through the workers' compensation insurance system. An attorney in Georgia can examine the incident and assist a client in pursuing the full amount of compensation available through all applicable sources.
