Question: I was driving in the course of work when I had an automobile accident. My employer says I have workers' compensation benefits. Does that make a difference?
Injuries from accidents occur in many different settings. Sometimes the injuries arise from an automobile or motorcycle accident, other times they may occur as the result of a dangerous condition on another person's property or perhaps from the use of a product which malfunctions or is improperly designed. In the worst of circumstances, injuries can result in the wrongful death of a person leaving behind surviving family members to deal with the emotional and financial losses caused by the wrongful death.

Yes, workers' compensation benefits are always primary. Additionally you have two potential claims, a workers compensation claim and a personal injury claim. You should be careful and hire an experienced attorney who know who understands both claims and how to maximize your recovery for each.
