Were You Injured In A Work-Related Vehicle Accident In New Mexico?
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death on the job. Industries such as construction and oil and gas involve the operation of heavy equipment, trucks and other vehicles in close proximity to workers on foot. Devastating accidents can occur in the blink of an eye.
With the recent oil boom in New Mexico, the risk of work-related vehicle accidents has soared. Service truck drivers are often underqualified, undertrained and/or overworked. Unfortunately, this creates a dangerous recipe for everyone in the proximity. If you or someone you love has been involved in a work-related auto accident, the lawyer at Youngers Law, PA, can help.
Don’t Make This Common Mistake
Many workers make the mistake of assuming that if they were injured on the job, then workers’ compensation is their only recourse. In many cases, however, you may have a third-party personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ comp claim. Negligent parties other than their employers – such as other workers, contractors, drivers or equipment manufacturers – can be sued for the part they played in contributing to the accident.
