If you are a truck driver who has been injured on the job, who better to turn to for help getting workers’ compensation benefits than a former trucker who knows the trucking industry inside and out?
At Brock Law Offices, our team of attorneys is led by Tony Brock, a former truck driver. Tony has been involved in the trucking industry in one way or another since childhood. Not only has he driven over the road, he has owned trucks and fixed trucks. He has had his commercial driver’s license (CDL) since before it became mandatory under federal law. We are committed to standing up for the rights of injured truckers.
Over the last 20-plus years, we have helped countless truck drivers get workers’ compensation benefits. We regularly sue Werner Enterprises, Crete Carrier Corp., K&B Trucking and other trucking companies and their insurers when they refuse to support the employees who have helped them to thrive.
Why Workers’ Compensation Claims Are Different For Truckers
When pursuing workers’ compensation claims, injured truck drivers may come up against challenges that workers in other industries may not have to deal with.
Because truck driving crosses state lines, multijurisdictional issues often arise. A trucker who lives in South Dakota may be hurt in a truck accident in Iowa while working for a trucking company based in Nebraska. Additionally, trucking companies are often self-insured, which creates a different dynamic than employers who have traditional workers’ compensation insurance.
Our knowledge of the trucking industry means our lawyers are positioned to overcome all of these challenges. We handle cases involving occupational injuries that have developed over time, cases involving injuries suffered while loading or unloading, injuries resulting from truck wrecks and more. Regardless of what happened we can help, and that help starts with a free consultation.
