On-the-job car accidents: Officer injured in late-night crash

A police officer reportedly suffered serious injuries in a recent motor vehicle accident that occurred as the officer was performing job-related duties at the site of a construction project in another state. Individuals in Georgia and elsewhere who suffer severe harm in on-the-job car accidents could face substantial financial hardships during recovery. While these injured workers may be eligible for relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, they might be uncertain how best to handle the situation.

The accident reportedly took place just after midnight on a recent Tuesday as the officer was performing surveillance at a construction site. Law enforcement agents say that another vehicle suddenly rammed the officer's patrol car from behind. The impact of the collision reportedly caused the officer to become trapped within the vehicle, and emergency responders were forced to extract the officer and rush the accident victim to a medical facility.

Authorities report that the officer and the person that caused the crash both suffered serious injuries in the process. Although an investigation is underway, no further details were provided as to what might have caused it to occur. Since the officer was on duty at the time of the crash, he or she may be eligible for relief through workers' compensation, but the process can be stressful and intimidating.

On-the-job car accidents can have disastrous consequences that may leave a person facing dire financial hardships. Those who wish to obtain information on all the available options for relief following such an incident could choose to retain the services of an experienced attorney for guidance. An attorney in Georgia can examine a client's situation thoroughly and assist him or her in pursuing the full amount of compensation achievable.
