“I am a waitress with a large chain restaurant. There was recently a blizzard in the northeast which dumped 18-20 inches of snow on the area. The restaurant refused to close until 10pm even though many other businesses around us had already closed. On the way home I got into an accident and now can’t go to work due to my injuries. Am I eligible for workers comp?” Becky-New York
No, because the accident did not happen while you were working. However, you can sue the other driver for your injuries, and your pain and suffering. Please contact Scurich Insurance Services for more information on Workers Compensation Benefits.
