Workers' compensation motor vehicle accident.

People are frequently injured on the job while driving a company vehicle.  Such accidents give rise to a workers' compensation claim.  Further, if the injured worker is not at fault, that individual could also bring a suit against the other driver. In these circumstances, a workers' compensation carrier may place a subrogation lien on the personal injury recovery based on money they have paid for medical expenses or income benefits regarding the workers' comp claim.  However, Georgia law makes it very difficult for the workers' compensation carrier to recover on such a lien.  If you would like to discuss your legal rights pertaining to a work related motor vehicle accident, call Atlanta workers' compensation attorney Brian Sumrall at (404)924-4595, or visit
