Everything You Need to Know about Worker's Compensation for Truck Drivers

Truck drivers work hard, long hours and often complete job tasks that involve heavy lifting. Because of this, people who work as trucks drivers are often exposed to hazardous conditions that lead to sometimes be serious injuries.

Most Frequent Truck Driver Accidents

Injuries from driving trucks can be very severe. The following are some of the most common truck driver-related injuries:

Auto accidents

Automobile accidents are commonplace even among those in the non-truck work sector, but given the increased amount of time on the road, truck drivers are one of the most high-risk drivers. Frequently, they experience driving fatigue, which can also increase truck drivers’ likelihood of getting into an automobile accident.

Back injuries

Sitting in a moving vehicle for days can be hard on the lower back. Often, drivers who are already sore from sitting for great lengths of time must then lift heavy equipment and merchandise off of their trucks during delivery, injuring their backs even further.

Effects of Truck Driver Injuries

Many people who suffer from truck driver-related injuries are not able to participate in the leisure and extracurricular they previously did. Some are no longer able to drive as a result of the pain or immobility. And still others are not able to do simple daily tasks around the house, such as chores or taking care of their families.
