Truck Drivers and Worker's Compensation

Truck drivers are by and large loyal working men and women. You work very hard to avoid letting your company down by delivering freight on time and keeping the customers happy. When you get hurt, you tend to tough it out before reporting the injury because you don't want the company to think you are soft or slacking off. Generally, when a trucker is injured on the job, loyalty is not a two-way street.brochure trucks.jpg

What is an FCE?

An FCE is a Functional Capacity Evaluation. It is sort of a physical fitness test. We see a majority of clients undergoing FCE's toward the end of the treatment cycle in a workers' compensation case. An FCE can also be used to help identify changes to employee workload, or modifications to working conditions such as ergonomic measures, that the employer may be able to undertake in an effort to accommodate an employee with a disability or medical condition. Common measurements of lifting power, push and pull power, how long you can stand or walk, flexibility and reaching, grasping and holding, bending, and balance are taken.

Talk to an Attorney, You Have Nothing Left to Lose.

The Positional Risk Doctrine: You May Be Covered Under Workers' Compenstation Even If Your Injury Wasn't Directly Related to Your Job

There are instances in which you may have a viable workers' compensation claim, but not realize it because, on its face, the injury doesn't appear to be work-related. Of course, Nebraska Workers' Compensation law requires that an injury must "arise out of" and "in the course" of employment in order to be compensable.
