Request Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation is a form of insurance that provides financial and medical benefits to employees who sustain work-related injuries or illnesses. In the event of a workplace accident, this system ensures that you receive compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses,
  • Rehabilitation costs, and
  • Potentially lost wages.

Moreover, the aim is to swiftly and fairly address the needs of injured workers.

Common Work Injuries of Drivers and Truckers

Commercial drivers and truckers work long hours and tight schedules. More importantly, they face exposure to the dangers of the road. These factors elevate the risk of work-related injuries. From strains and sprains to more severe accidents, the toll on a driver’s physical health can be substantial.

Musculoskeletal Issues: The nature of driving involves prolonged periods of sitting. Therefore, leading to musculoskeletal problems. Commercial driving can subject individuals to repetitive motion injuries and physical strain associated with the profession. These issues include:

  • Lower Back Pain
  • Neck and Shoulder Strain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Knee and Hip Problems
  • Whole-body Fatigue

Accidents on the Road: Additionally, truckers are particularly vulnerable to accidents on the highway. This can result in severe injuries. Employees in this profession are exposed to a variety of risks that can result in the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Back Injuries
  • Head Injuries
  • Fractures and Dislocations
  • Soft Tissue Injuries and even,
  • Internal Injuries

Identifying how Workers’ Compensation laws apply to these situations is crucial. As your local work injury lawyer, I’m committed to addressing these challenges through skilled representation.

For example, you might be involved in an on-the-job car or truck accident that was caused by someone other than you or your co-worker. After a motor vehicle accident at work, compensation can include medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs. 

Pain and suffering and many other types of damages are not available in a workers’ compensation claim. This is due to the Georgia law called “exclusive remedy.” However, damages you can recover in what is called a “third-party” negligence claim can include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
