Truck Drivers And Workers' Compensation

Some truck driver injuries occur suddenly, while others develop over time. As long as the injury is either caused or aggravated by your work activities, you are covered by workers' compensation. Examples of truck driver injuries include:

  • Accident injuries
  • Mental health issues following a crash
  • Injuries that happen while hitching or unhitching a trailer
  • Back injuries from lifting
  • Back injuries from driving, shifting or clutch use

As soon as you realize that you are unable to do your job due to a work-related injury, it is important to notify your employer. You should also contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer.

If you are injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, you may have the right to recover additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
