My van Accident While on the Job?

On June 10th of 2013, I was driving from one patient's house to the next one. I made a stop for 3 seconds side the road. A boy Traveling approximately 60 mph, with no stooping he hit my van backside. Neither of our van were driveable. He told me that he was playing with the radio and when she looked up she saw my back end.

My question is, would my lawsuit fall under Workers Compensation, her auto insurance, or both? I find it to be unfair that our workers comp insurance should have to pay out for her mistake.

That is an auto insurance matter. If you were injured, then you could claim from worker's compensation, but since only the vehicles were damaged, the insurance company will have to handle that. Worker's compensation is for injuries sustained while in the course of work, not for vehicles.
