On The Job Car Accidents

Atlanta Workers' Compensation Attorney for On-the-Job Car Accidents

Legal Support for Work-Related Vehicle Accidents in Atlanta

Working outside your home almost certainly entails traveling in a motor vehicle. For many of us, driving is just a way to commute to and from work. But if you drive for work or as part of your job duties, you should know that a car accident may qualify as compensable under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act (GWCA).

On-the-job car accidents are a common area of confusion for many workers in metro Atlanta. The Law Office of Arthur E. Snead, LLC helps injured workers better understand their rights and options after a workplace injury. If you have been hurt in a car accident at work, we can help.

Contact our experienced workers compensation attorneys in Atlanta to schedule your free consultation directly with an Atlanta work car accident attorney. 

Understanding Commuter vs. Work-Related Car Accidents

In most cases, commuting to and from work is not considered work time. Beyond this distinction, however, the line between working and not working is not always clear.

Criteria for Work-Related Car Accidents in Georgia

In order to be compensable, the car accident typically must occur while you are “on the job.”

Your car accident may be deemed “on the job” or work-related if any of the following criteria are met:

  • You drive for a living
  • You are making a delivery for work
  • You are running a work-related errand for your boss
  • You are driving in a company-owned vehicle that was not given to you for personal use
  • You are traveling off-site to a different job location
  • You are transporting a fellow employee for reasons related to work (other than carpooled commuting)
  • You are being compensated by your employer for travel time or mileage
  • You don’t have a fixed office and must therefore travel all the time

Because there is some gray area in cases like these, you may be unsure if your car accident qualifies as “on the job.” Moreover, your employer may try to deny your workers’ compensation claim by arguing that your travel at the time of the crash was personal, not work-related. In either case, you can protect your rights and better understand your legal options by consulting with an attorney.
