Vehicle Accidents In The Course Of Employment

When driving is a regular part of your job, your increased time on the roadways may make it more likely that you will be in a motor vehicle accident while in the course of your work. At the law firm of Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield, based in Rolla, our attorneys have an extensive personal injury practice that is committed to ensuring our injured clients receive the care and recovery they need and deserve. We frequently advocate on behalf of employees who have been injured in an auto or truck accident while on the job.

Understanding All Of Your Options

When you are hurt on the job, you may have a workers' compensation claim, but you may also have a third-party claim for workplace injuries against parties such as manufacturers of dangerous products or drivers of automobiles, and you may be able to obtain a damages award against them.

There are a number of professions that require employees to spend a great deal of time driving. We have represented delivery drivers, sales consultants, in-home therapy or hospice providers, and construction workers injured on the job. Our firm handles serious cases with severe injuries, including those involving:

  • Truck accidents
  • Crush injuries
  • Forklift accidents
  • Overturned vehicles
  • Injuries while operating heavy machinery
  • Injuries caused by workplace vehicles
  • Wrongful death

Construction or work sites can be very dangerous work environments under the best of circumstances. When there are added dangers such as dangerous or defective products, the likelihood of serious injury increases. There are typically a number of large pieces of equipment and workplace vehicles, including steamrollers, forklifts, cement trucks, and bucket trucks that have the potential to cause serious injury when accidents occur.

Our lawyers have more than 50 years combined experience handling workers' compensation cases in Missouri and a long history of success in litigation. You can count on us to represent you every step of the way, whether it is dealing with the insurance companies on your behalf, or advocating for your interests and recovery rights in a legal challenge.
