Each and every day, people are hurt while they are working. Some of these accidents involve machinery or heights, but other accidents may involve traffic. From pedestrian accidents to motorcycle, scooter, large truck and rideshare accidents, there are many ways in which workers are injured on the job in motor vehicle accidents. Moreover, there are a number of risk factors that may increase the likelihood of such accidents, such as excessive work.
Job-related traffic accidents take all sorts of forms, whether a truck driver falls asleep behind the wheel or someone is injured while delivering pizza or something else that has been ordered. Many people have to walk as part of their job duties, and in some instances these responsibilities may place them near traffic—which could lead to a pedestrian accident. These are just a couple of the many different ways in which people are involved in traffic accidents while they are on the job, and our law office knows how life can change for the worse in the wake of an accident.
Not only do workers face greater risks when they are exhausted and overworked, but they may be struck by someone who is very tired because they have been working too long. Moreover, these accidents may also occur on the job, and they may even involve co-workers.
Our law firm knows that work-related traffic accidents can pose serious temporary and long-term hardships for victims and those they love also. We believe that people in this position should have a good understanding of any legal options which may be available to them.
