Can I sue the other driver if I was hurt in an auto accident while working?

Published February 12, 2018 by Bruce Millar

Yes. You may be able to pursue what is commonly called a “third-party liability claim.”

If you were working when the accident occurred, you should be able to obtain workers’ compensation benefits that will cover your medical bills and a percentage of your lost wages. However, if a non-employee caused your crash such as another driver, you may pursue a personal injury claim against that other driver.  This is known as a third-party claim and could pay additional compensation, including general damages such as physical pain and suffering, mental distress, disfigurement and the loss of intimacy and companionship.
