Need Help With A Work-Related Car Accident Claim?

If you are injured in a work-related auto accident, you may be entitled to benefits from workers' compensation. While normal commutes to and from work are not covered by workers' compensation, many other types of accidents are.

At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to determine if your car accident claim may be covered by workers' compensation. Founding attorney Katherine L. Niven served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers' Compensation and was a Pennsylvania workers' compensation judge.

Is My Auto Accident Covered By Workers' Compensation?

Injuries suffered in an auto accident are covered by Pennsylvania workers' compensation as long as you were on the job when the accident occurred. Here are some examples:

  • You are a professional driver
  • You were making a delivery
  • You were running an errand for your employer
  • You were traveling to a client's house or place of business
  • You were driving yourself or another employee to a meeting or other work activity
  • You were traveling for your employer
  • You work out of your car

Accidents during your commute to and from your office are not normally covered, unless you are paid for your travel time.

What If The Accident Was Caused By Another Driver?

If you are injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, you may have the right to recover additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
