On the Road
You don’t have to be a truck driver to be injured on the road while at work.
You may be picking up a supply for work, between two appointments in your own car or a co-worker’s car and be covered by Worker’s Compensation for lost wages, medical payments and other expenses.
If you are injured on the road during the course of your employment, New York no-fault will supplement your Worker’s Compensation benefits and provide additional lost wages. There may be other insurance available to you that you are unaware of and will lose if you don’t put the insurance company on proper notice. Benefits may include supplemental underinsured motorist coverage or uninsured motorist coverage. Sometimes more than one insurance policy covers a single vehicle. You may lose your rights if you don’t file timely notices.
