Advocating For Injured Truck Drivers
As a truck driver, you log thousands of safely driven miles each year. However, like all professional truckers, you cannot prevent accidents caused by forces beyond your control. This can include when your employer gives you a poorly maintained truck to drive, when your boss forces you to drive beyond safe time limits, when you are resting in the sleeper car and you co-driver gets into an accident, or when another motorist slams into your truck.
As with any employee in any industry, you expect that your employer will take care of you after your accident. After all, aren’t companies supposed to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering when an employee is injured on the clock? In a just world, yes. However, truck company owners have been known to deny injury claims of their own workers and offer lowball settlements that do not reflect the true extent of the injuries.
