Accident while delivering pizza - terminated!!
#1
Hey guys!
I would like some advice here. My brother got into an accident while he was working for a pizza shop. He is a pizza delivery person. He was hit by a speeding car who jumped a red signal. It sped the accident location and cops still couldn't catch the person.
The worse situation is he may not be able to work for another couple of months at least as he has broken both his legs and have several minor injuries. The pizza shop also stabbed on his back by firing him immediately after knowing about the accident. Is it legal?
His injury should be considered as a workplace injury, right? Don’t he have rights to claim for workplace injury compensation? Can a personal injury lawyer help? Or else how can we deal with this situation?

Depends on the reason and the state laws and if he is covered by FMLA.
Yes he should be covered by workers comp except in a couple states. What is the state?
Until they've identified a third party there is no one to file a PI claim against.-- I assume brother had auto insurance.
if so, they should handle without atty.
Have your brother file directly with the comp carrier
