Q: Am I eligible to make a claim for personal injuries if I am injured in a work related car accident which is caused by another person?
Yes. Under Pennsylvania law you may pursue a personal injury case, in addition to the worker's compensation claim. In fact, studies show that in 2010 crashes involving motor vehicles on public roadways were the leading cause of work related fatalities, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, accounting for 21 percent of all fatal work injuries.
