Injured In Car Accident In Palm Desert While On The Job

Image Placeholder
Received an Email addressed to The Palm Desert Injury Attorney about an automobile accident occuring on Highway 111 near the Town Center. It was a two car accident and both drivers were injured. The driver that contacted me wanted to know if he could sue the other driver who was at fault for the accident because he, the driver who contacted me was also in the course and scope of his employment at the time of the accident. He was making a delivery for his boss. The answer to his question is YES. He could sue the driver at fault for the accident and also make a claim for Workers Compensation benefits. As a Coachella Valley Personal Injury Lawyer I am often contacted by accident victims who are injured, "on the job", by events negligently caused by persons who are not co-employees. In these situations, the accident victim has two remedies he may pursue.
