Commercial Truck Drivers
Workers Compensation for Drivers Injured on the Job
Work injuries don’t always happen “at work.” If you are a commercial driver or were driving in a work-related capacity, you are still covered under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws.
The attorneys of Martin Law have represented scores of drivers and employees injured in truck accidents or other accidents while on duty. We bring 30 years of experience and exclusively represent workers, never employers or insurance companies.
Before you file a claim, call us at 215.587.8400 for a free consultation and explanation of your rights. We serve the five-county Philadelphia area and southeast Pennsylvania.
Truck Accidents and Other Injuries to Drivers
Having represented over-the-road haulers, delivery drivers, package truck drivers, bus drivers and other commercial truck drivers, our experienced lawyers are familiar with the common injuries and causes of injuries:
- Truck accidents
- Loading and unloading accidents
- Back injuries from lifting and carrying
- Injuries from tarps, straps or doors
- Falls from trucks
- Slip-and-fall injuries
If you can’t return to work, your employer must provide workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of fault and regardless of where the accident occurred. Our job is to maximize your disability benefits and protect your work injury rights, such as your right to see doctors of your choosing and your right to stay off the job until you are cleared for light duty or full duty.
In many cases, a third party may be liable in a separate lawsuit for negligence, another motorist who caused your truck accident or a property owner responsible for a driver’s falling injury. We explore all potential claims.
