Attorneys Helping Injured Truck Drivers Claim Workers’ Comp Benefits
Trucking is critical to the United States economy, and it is very common to see truck drivers delivering goods up and down the East Coast. They are a fixture on the highways of Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Trucking can be a difficult and strenuous job though, and potential injuries are not just limited to accidents with other motor vehicles. If you have been hurt while driving a truck for your job, the attorneys at DiFruscia Law Offices have the experience and knowledge needed to help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits.
The Physical Costs And Risks Of Truck Driving
Many people do not understand the toll that trucking can take on the body. We regularly help clients seek workers’ compensation benefits for accidents and injuries that include:
- Collisions with other vehicles
- Falling out of the cab while entering or exiting the truck
- Back and shoulder injuries from lifting and loading gear into the vehicle
- Chronic back pain and joint pain from excessive sitting
- Slip-and-fall accidents while fueling the truck
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Our firm regularly helps truck drivers who have been hurt on the job. Approximately half of these cases involve strains and sprains. You may be hesitant to seek workers’ compensation for seemingly minor injuries that might not sound “serious.” However, these injuries can cause significant pain and make it far more difficult for you to do your job. And remember: If your injuries were work-related, you are likely entitled to these benefits.
We Help You Present The Strongest Case For Compensation
You are not required to work with a lawyer when submitting a workers’ compensation claim, but doing so can make the process much easier and less frustrating. Employers and insurers often look for any reason to deny a claim in order to save themselves money. Thankfully, it is much harder for them to do this if you are represented by a skilled and experienced attorney.
We will help you prepare and submit your claim, ensuring that you have fulfilled all reporting requirements and met all deadlines. If your claim is denied, we are ready to represent you at all levels of the appeal process.
