Is work liable for your car crash on the job?

Minnesota residents who deal with driving as part of your job will have the additional risks that come with operating a vehicle on potentially busy roads. We at Lindberg Law, P.C., are here today to discuss whether or not a company can be held liable for a crash you get into while on the job.

There are certain situations in which your company can be held accountable for crashes that you suffered from while on the clock. This can include just getting into a crash while driving a car for company reasons. These reasons may include things like picking up or dropping off company wares, making deliveries for the company, or even traveling to or from a meeting while on the clock.

It can also apply to accidents on company ground. As an example, if you are an operator of construction equipment and the crash occurred on the construction side, the company may be held liable. The primary piece that needs to be in place is that you need to have been working on the clock at the time of the incident.

However, there are also some situations in which your company cannot be held liable. One such instance is if you were found to have been driving while under the influence on the job at the time of the crash, or if you were participating in unsafe behavior like speeding or distracted driving.

If you have gotten into a crash while on the job and suffered injuries because of it, you may want to view our web page on workplace injuries, linked here. You can learn more about your options for handling the incident and its aftermath while seeking the compensation you deserve.
