Can I file for work comp benefits after a job-related car accident?

Our firm has helped people facing all manner of on-the-job injuries. We've seen people with back pain caused by repetitive motions, clients who broke bones in slip-and-fall accidents in the workplace, and employees who paid the price for their employers' lax safety protocols. An area where we've also been able to help clients collect the workers' compensation benefits due them is work-related car accidents.

Consider Purchasing More Insurance Coverage than Minnesota Law Requires

Far too often, I see clients that have purchased the minimum liability coverage in Minnesota, which is $30,000 per person and $60,000 per incident (30/60)1 for liability and $25,000 per person and $50,000 per incident (25/50)2 for Underinsured (UIM) and Uninsured (UM) motorist coverage. Generally speaking, liability coverage provides payment to an injured person in the event you cause an accident. UIM/UM coverage protects you and your family from another driver that caused an accident and either did not have coverage or did not have sufficient coverage to cover the injuries  that you or your family members sustained.
