Wake County School Bus Driver Injured in Car Accident

BusAccident_06082014Early in April, a Wake County school bus driver was taken to the hospital for injuries received after being hit by a car that ran through a stop sign at Wilmington Street and Pecan Road in Raleigh, North Carolina, according to a report by WRAL. Fortunately, no children were on board.

Bus drivers for county school systems have the ever-important task of keeping their passengers, and themselves, safe. When someone is injured in a car or truck accident while on the job, they may be entitled to workers' compensation. And, if the accident was not their fault, they may have grounds for a personal injury claim as well. Fault is not typically a factor for workers' compensation.

If you've been injured at work, you may have a personal injury case (in addition to your workers' compensation claim) if:

  1. Your injuries/damages sustained a work were the result of a defective product.
  2. A third party (meaning a person who is not also employed with your company) is responsible for your accident.
  3. Under certain circumstances, a parent corporation might be held liable for negligent action of its subsidiaries.

However, there may be other extenuating circumstances that could result in a basis for a personal injury claim, in addition to your workers' compensation claim. If you've been injured at work, you may need an attorney to fight on your behalf, for all the benefits you may need.

If you've been injured at work, you need to protect all of your rights. Contact the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin right now for a free and confidential case evaluation. One of our three NC Board Certified Workers' Compensation Specialists may be able to help you.
