How To Seek Workers’ Compensation For A Trucking Accident
It is not unusual for workers’ compensation claims to arise for people who drive as part of their job. Two prime examples are truck drivers and drivers of commercial vehicles. The United States Department of Transportation estimates that approximately half a million of these wrecks occur nationally each year, and 5,000 of the accidents result in fatalities.
