Drivers of work vehicles such as company cars, vans and heavy goods vehicles (HGV) that are involved in a road accident have the same right to claim for compensation as any other road user. Similarly, when involved in a road accident these drivers usually experience similar problems and injuries experienced by other road users who have been in an accident. A work related vehicle accident typically occurs on a road and involves an employee that spends time driving vehicles such a company car, taxi or van. However, operators of forklift trucks and construction vehicles might become involved in an accident at their place of work.
