I was Injured in a car wreck on my way home from work, can I receive Workers’ Compensation?
The short answer: it depends.
Even when another person is responsible for your injuries during a car wreck in Mississippi, if you were “in the course and scope” of your injuries you are entitled to workers’ compensation. As a general rule Employees are not covered by workers’ compensation when going to or coming from work but there are several exceptions to that general rule. For instance, if travel is a part of your job then it is possible you could be covered by workers’ compensation. Even if you are off the clock making a trip at the request of your supervisor you could be covered by workers’ compensation.
