Types Of Trucking Industry Accidents
The number of hours truck drivers spend on the road every week obviously makes them more susceptible to motor vehicle accidents than the average person. However, truck accidents are not the only accidents that can befall a truck driver. They could be injured while loading or unloading cargo, for example. People who have never driven a truck for long hours are often surprised to learn of the toll that this takes on the human body. Truck drivers may be susceptible to lower back injuries and other injuries simply because of the time they spend behind the wheel every week. Our Minnesota workers’ compensation attorneys handle claims involving:
- Trucking collisions
- Lifting injuries
- Forklift accidents
- Falling objects
- Slip-and-fall accidents
Long-term disability policies are often made available to truckers, either through their employers or privately. These policies can provide benefits in the event of a work injury. Our lawyers are here to help you get all of the benefits you are entitled to under your policy, even if the insurance company resists fulfilling its end of the contract.
