Trucking and Transportation accidents require rapid legal response. The hours following a serious trucking accident are critical. This is the time to take immediate action to deploy investigators and experts, collect and preserve important evidence, gather information, talk to witnesses and provide informed legal counsel to your company and driver. Having the right people on the scene when you need them can mean the difference between a successful resolution and a significant loss.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has rules and regulations in place that govern the collection of certain data and evidence following an accident, including drug and alcohol testing of professional drivers. In addition, local, state and federal law enforcement agencies have procedures in place that govern their investigation of an accident. These agencies do not, however, have an interest in protecting the individuals or companies involved in the accident. And while they may have an interest in “collecting” data and evidence, the manner in which the data and evidence is collected might not always result in that information being properly “preserved.” Webster Law Group’s Managing Partner has established a rapid response protocol to assist clients who find themselves in the unfortunate position of being involved in such accidents. A Webster Law team member will go to the scene immediately and manage the serious post-accident investigations, claims and litigation. Our rapid response capability is one of the services provided by our firm that separates us from others, as you can contact us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please call Sage Morris-Webster at the office (407) 425-2583 or on her cell (407) 694-7226, and she will ensure that the situation is properly handled.

Webster Law Group has assembled a team which includes accident reconstruction experts, field investigators and independent adjusters. With the assistance of these individuals, our rapid response attorneys can immediately begin the investigation of a serious accident taking into consideration our client’s interests with an eye toward preserving and collecting information likely to have a major impact during subsequent litigation. We can assist you in:

  • Automobile/Trucking Insurance (liability, comprehensive, collision, and uninsured motorists)
  • Excess Insurance Coverage
  • Personal Injury
  • Preventative Measures

The Webster Law Group serves hundreds of clients with their legal needs when they are due Federal Workers’ Compensation, Longshore, or Government Contractor benefits.

If a federal employee is injured in the course of employment that employee may be entitled to what we refer to as federal workers compensation benefits.

Federal workers compensation benefits can include:

  1. Lost Wages. This benefit is simply compensation for time off work due to the accepted work related conditions. This is also referred to as "Total Temporary Disability" or "Periodic Roll.”
  2. Payment for Medical Expenses. This benefit is fairly self explanatory. The OWCP should always be responsible for your medical expenses connected to your accepted work related conditions.
  3. Schedule Award. This benefit is a potential payment (separate from lost wages) if your injury is established to have created a permanent impairment to an extremity or certain listed organs.

Will any of these benefits be paid? That decision will be made by the Office of Workers Compensation (OWCP) which participates in the direction of that treatment by requiring pre-approval of payment for those services. The OWCP may request that you use only their pre-authorized doctors, and may request that their representative (usually a nurse) attend and monitor your medical visits with the doctor, visit privately with your doctor, and report back to OWCP with his/her opinion of your course of treatment. As in the case of private insurance involvement the procedures required can be frustrating to both the worker and the worker's doctor.

Federal employees often confuse their federal workers compensation rights with another similar benefit referred to as "Continuation of Pay" (COP). When the employee is receiving COP payments they often think that they are already qualified for and are receiving federal workers compensation benefits for an approved/accepted claim. It is often not until later that it is learned that they are not yet qualified for workers compensation benefits at all and circumstances have developed that prevent them from receiving full federal workers compensation benefit entitlement.

Our firm has also represented numerous clients who had accidents while employed by a company working on a contract with the federal government. These might include injuries from overseas employment. These cases are normally designated “Longshore,” DBA, Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities Act, War Hazards Compensation Act and handled under the Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act procedures.
