Truck Driving Work Injury And Workers' Comp Attorney
According to the Indiana Department of Labor, transportation workers, including commercial truckers and delivery drivers, experience among the highest rates of on-the-job, non-fatal injuries. The United States is also experiencing a significant increase in work-related commercial truck deaths. These statistics shine a light on the hazardous conditions drivers face when operating a motor vehicle for employment. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide coverage for medical care and lost wages for truckers and professional drivers. But on-the-job motor vehicle injuries and deaths are not limited to trucking and professional drivers. Workers' comp coverage also protects workers involved in motor vehicle accidents while on the job.
