I was in a car accident this past week where I was rear ended by another party. I am a contractor that is working for a company that employs many of it's staff through a staffing company. Technically, I get my paycheck every week from the staffing company. I also collect health insurance and have workers comp through the staffing company.
So, I was driving the company's truck (not the staffing company) and got rear ended. I went to the ER and xrays turned up negative but i still have pain in my neck and back.
I do not have an attorney and I am pretty confused on what is going to happen next. Will I need to talk to the guy's insurance company who rear ended me? Will there be an injury settlement with workers comp and with the insurance of the guy who hit me?
I am able to return to work and I don't want to jeopardize my job so I want to make sure I don't piss off the company I am working for. I just want to make sure I am getting something to help me with bills.
