Work Vehicle Accidents

Assisting Employees with Injuries in Menlo Park, Redwood City, and San Mateo County

Heavy Duty Equipment If you have been injured in a car accident while driving in conjunction with your job, you may be wondering whether to bring a personal injury lawsuit or a workers’ compensation claim. Depending on the facts of your case, you may actually be able to pursue both.

Will a Personal Injury Claim Increase Your Total Compensation?

Whether you were driving as an integral part of your job or just doing a work errand when you had an accident, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation. If your accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, you may also have a third-party personal injury claim.

Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to maximize your overall recovery by pursuing both personal injury and workers’ compensation claims.

If the driver responsible for your accident is uninsured or does not have enough insurance to cover your injuries, you may also have a claim against your employer’s uninsured and underinsured motorist policy, even if you were driving your own car for work purposes.

I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.

I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
