CLAIM SCENARIOS While workers' compensation laws vary from state to state, most auto-related workers' compensation claims cover the following situations: • Driving to or from a business appointment • Performing an errand for an employer • Making deliveries • Transporting another employee This leads to a vast array of potential claim scenarios. Here are just a few examples: Scenario 1 One small oversight, one huge claim. A pedestrian is seriously injured when an employee runs a red light. It turns out the employer neglected to check the motor vehicle report (MVR) of the newly hired employee, and his license has been suspended for a DUI. The injured pedestrian files a $2 million negligence suit against the employer. Scenario 2 The long…long road to recovery. The recovery of an employee who injured his back and had multiple fractures draws on endlessly. Months after the accident, he still is in a lot of pain and says if he hadn't felt so much pressure to get to the appointment, the accident would have never happened. A few weeks later, the employer is hit with a six- figure suit for pain and suffering. Scenario 3 A bad brake. An employee rear-ends another vehicle on route to an appointment, injuring his neck and back and causing thousands of dollars of damage to the employer's vehicle and the other car. The employee says the accident was caused by brake failure and could have been avoided with some simple maintenance to the truck. Shortly thereafter, the employer is sued for pain and suffering.
