Truckers and delivery drivers keep our nation’s economy going by delivering the vital products our businesses and consumers need every day. Because of this essential role, truck drivers and delivery drivers are among the most indispensable workers in America.
We have seen, even in these unprecedented times, shelves missing things like toilet paper and frozen vegetables. They aren’t empty long, because of the hard work and dedication of our country’s essential supply chain drivers. Stores, even in the face of a pandemic, can restock their shelves, and at-risk consumers can shop from the safety of their home because truckers and delivery drivers put their health and safety on the line to make those deliveries. For these reasons, we feel they deserve better.
As the backbone of the U.S. supply chain, our truck drivers and delivery workers shouldn’t have to worry how they’re going to make ends meet and support their family if they get hurt at work. If truckers or delivery workers sustain a work-related injury or illness from their job, they deserve and are entitled to temporary disability for the time they can’t work, medical treatment for their injury or disease, and fair compensation for any permanent loss of function they have to that injured body part.
If you are a trucker or delivery driver who got hurt at work, let our law firm work aggressively on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve. Our New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers are proud to stand by your side and guide you, every step of the way.
What are common delivery driver and trucker injuries?
The added time that truck drivers and delivery drivers spend on the road exposes them to much more danger than people who only drive occasionally. Unfortunately, having such a hazardous job comes with risk of injury from car accidents, loading or unloading injuries, exposure to hazardous materials, or any other of the many dangers these vital workers encounter.
Our family has been helping the families of injured workers since 1927. Over the years, we’ve seen truck drivers and delivery drivers suffer all types of injuries and illnesses. We’ve fought for our clients to be compensated for many common injuries, including:
- Muscle sprains and strains, such as lumbar and cervical sprains and strains
- Back injuries, including herniated discs
- Neck injuries, including herniated discs
- Concussions/Traumatic brain injuries
- Shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff tears or labral tears
- Knee injuries, such as torn meniscus, torn ACL or torn MCL
- Foot and ankle injuries, such as plantar fasciitis and turf toe
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Hand injuries
- Arm injuries, such as epicondylitis
- Fractured and broken bones
These injuries can happen in several different ways. Maybe you were in a car accident while making a delivery and sustained a concussion. It could be that you were unloading cargo, slipped and suffered a serious back injury. Or you may have developed carpal tunnel syndrome from steering the wheel of your truck. Perhaps, like other delivery drivers and truckers, you were exposed to infectious diseases or viruses by being around a lot of people or making deliveries to heavily trafficked stores.
No matter what type of injury or illness you’re dealing with, call our law firm so we can explain your options and give you answers to your questions. You may be eligible for certain wage replacement benefits in the form of temporary disability, medical benefits, and a settlement at the end of your case for permanent loss of function of an injured body part. Our New Jersey workers’ compensation attorneys can help you get what you deserve. Let our family help yours.
Workers’ comp lawyers delivering results to injured truckers and drivers
Getting injured on the job can have major financial and health implications for delivery drivers and truckers. You may need to miss extensive time from work while you recover from your work injury or occupational illness. We understand how an injured worker’s bills can pile up fast while they aren’t able to work. The bills don’t wait for you to get better.
To make matters worse, your employer’s insurance company may deny or delay your claim for benefits, leaving you with little or no compensation or medical treatment to get you better. The last thing anyone wants is to be on their own, fighting a giant insurance company who wants to try to get them to foot the bill for their work injury.
Let our law firm take control. Since 1927, our family has been fighting for injured workers like you to get you the treatment and compensation you need and deserve. We are proud to do that, because we are proud to stand with the hard-working men and women of our country -- the men and women who don’t want or need a handout, but who are entitled to benefits through their employer’s insurance when they are hurt on the job. You have done your part for our economy, and now let someone fight for you when you need help.
Our New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers have generational knowledge and experience in this field and are ready and willing to handle every aspect of your claim, so you can spend your time focusing on your recovery.
Whether you are in the beginning stages of filing a claim or your claim has been denied and you need to challenge the insurance company’s decision, we will fight to get you the maximum amount of benefits possible.
