Truck drivers are exposed to a myriad of dangerous conditions on the job. The pressures to get their job done quickly can cause them to push themselves past their limits, whether driving on the highway or lifting heavy objects while loading or unloading deliveries. Physical injuries can result from accidents on the job, as well as from repetitive trauma induced by the demands of the work. A truck driver who is injured on the job has a right to pursue workers’ compensation benefits.
At Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, our attorneys have a history of helping injured and disabled workers throughout Pennsylvania. If you or a family member has suffered a truck driving injury or has been involved in a serious or fatal trucking accident, our lawyers are here to help ease the process of filing for a workers’ comp claim.
Accidents On The Road And Off
Our Philadelphia truck driver injury attorneys help injured truckers and their families in workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability, and third-party claims that may arise out of a severe trucker work accident such as:
- Highway truck accidents: Blame for trucking accidents is frequently shifted to the trucker. However, there are many instances when the trucker is not responsible for the crash. We assist Pennsylvania and out-of-state truckers who have been injured in accidents while traveling along Pennsylvania highways and interstates such as I-80, I-81, I-76, I-78, I-476, Route 22, Route 422, Route 30 or any other roadway in Pennsylvania.
- Trucker slip-and-falls: We represent truckers who have suffered a back injury or other serious work injury in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident while working such as tripping over obstacles when loading or unloading truck beds, slipping and falling on ice or other property-related accident.
- Loading and unloading accidents: Our firm has experience representing truckers who are injured while performing heavy lifting during the loading and unloading of 18-wheeler trucks, delivery trucks, and other commercial trucks. These truck driver injuries frequently involve a back injury, shoulder/rotator cuff injury, or neck injury.
- Trucker injuries involving defective products: Our attorneys understand that a trucker work accident can often include complex issues, such as defective or dangerous parts or products. Whether a crash involved faulty tires, poor truck maintenance or other defect issues, we have the experience and resources to find answers and pursue the benefits and compensation the trucker deserves.
