i have to wonder if this was a job related injury. According to what you said, you were not working at the time in any capacity. You had left the job site already. You were driving a car on the public road. Correct? If so, where you were driving to and from seems to be irrelevant. The police may have just been asking in order to get the entire story. You also did not say who’s fault the car accident was according to the legal entities. However, it seem in no way to be the fault of your employer.

I am sorry that you got hurt no matter what and I hope that you are doing much better soon.

*Note: I am just using common sense here with no actual law knowledge on the subject whatsoever and no actual knowledge as to the event. Please do not take this as real legal advise in any way.

If you are injured on the job then you will be subject to workers compensation law. Workers compensation was negotiated by businesses and workers I believe over 100 years ago to avoid employers from being involved in personal injury and similar lawsuits and to allow the worker to have access to the legal system. Based upon the injury you receive an award typically lower then if you filed a personal injury claim.Workers Compensation law is based upon the State you reside. Your question involves other issues.. Paid in cash doesn’t mean you weren’t an employee subject to workers compensation law as long as you can established you were working the job. You do not indicate if the employer had workers compensation insurance or not. If the employer did not have workers compensation insurance then in California the Department of Industrial Relations would fine the employer typically $5000 per unisured employee.. You still have rigths depnding on when the injury occurred
