Workers' compensation is meant to cover injuries that occur on the job. Some positons of employment may not have a traditional space of work, but that does not mean these employees are ineligible for benefits. If you were driving in the job or for a work-related reason, you may be eligible for workers' compensation.
Some covered injuries occur when:
- Running an errand for your employer
- Transporting another employee
- Making deliveries
- Drive for a living
- Traveling for work without an office
- Paid for travel time
If you were injured simply on your way to or from work, you may be ineligible for workers' compensation unless you were also running errands for your employer. To discover how you may be able to recover benefits, speaking with an attorney will be in your best interest.
