On-the-Job Motor Vehicle Accidents

Call to Work with Our Oakland Workers' Compensation Lawyers

In today’s day and age of expedient service and same-day deliveries, there is an increasing number of occupations that require employees to regularly set out on public roadways. From mail couriers and food delivery crews to commercial truck drivers and shuttle staff, all sorts of careers involve transportation directly related to necessary duties. What many employers do not realize, or do not want to accept, is that by taking a worker out of the office or retail location and requiring them to embark on a trip across town puts that employee at an increased risk of injury.

Oftentimes, when an employee is hurt while driving on-the-job, they find themselves in a predicament of trying to get their parent company to accept responsibility. What many employers try to claim is that they are only accountable for accidents that happen at “home base” or the office. At Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center, our Oakland workers’ comp attorneys are dedicated to bringing fair representation to people in such seemingly one-sided situations.

Common Dangers Involving Motor Vehicles at Work

Workers who traverse public roadways to fulfill the duties as described in their job title are not necessarily the only ones in danger of on-the-job motor vehicle accidents. There are plenty of occupations that require the operation of mobile, heavy machinery. Without proper training or maintenance, these helpful machines can become dangerous to industrial workers.

Motor vehicles that frequently pose a hazard to workers include:

  • Forklifts
  • Tractors
  • Motorized pallet jacks
  • Cranes
  • Mining equipment
  • Lawn care equipment

For many other workers, driving a vehicle is essentially the backbone of their professions. While it might be expected for them to get ample coverage in case of a car accident, this is not a guarantee. It may be necessary for them to get help and guidance from a professional lawyer instead.

In the past, we have represented workers who spend much of their time on the road, such as:
