Injured while traveling on business: get a free insurance coverage assessment and lawsuit consult

The benefit of consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer is your source of liability. Businesses (or insurance policy coverages) could be liable for paying for your injuries, including medical bills, missed time at work and pain and suffering. 

Was your accident job-related?

Trying to figure out which activities are and are not work-related can be complex. Every situation is different. Your company may carry business travel insurance specifically for business trip injuries and unexpected situations. Warshafsky highly recommends getting in contact with an attorney and having your case assessed before settling with any insurance company.

While injuries sustained during a business dinner with clients are most likely covered injuries obtained while going to dinner after business hours for personal reasons are most likely not covered. Injuries sustained while sightseeing or taking a side trip on your own are probably not covered yet injuries sustained while traveling for business (flying, taking a ferry, driving, etc.) are.
