If you drive a semitrailer, delivery truck or other commercial transport for a living, you face risks every day. You can be injured on the road, at your loading/unloading facilities and any place between.
The fact that many commercial truck drivers are injured far away from where they live or from where their employers are based can complicate their attempts to get workers' compensation for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and other damages.

Our lawyers are deeply familiar with Nebraska workers' compensation laws, and they have achieved compensation for many truckers who were injured in situations like yours.

Our attorneys can help you seek workers' compensation in these and other situations:
- You were injured by a co-worker at a loading dock or at a loading/unloading facility (such as in a forklift accident).
- Your employer failed to maintain your vehicle's brakes or fuel systems, leading to an accident.
- Your load was improperly balanced, causing a truck accident .
- You were injured on the road in a collision with a negligent motorist .
- Your rig failed to operate properly due to a manufacturer's defect (such as an exploding tire).
Workers' compensation insurance usually covers the costs of these and other work-related injuries. However, it may not cover everything. Whether your truck accident injuries are minor or catastrophic , our attorneys can use accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, vocational counselors and others to determine the full extent of your injuries and the costs for years to come.
If you are employed by a trucking company or you are self-insured, we can work with insurance companies to achieve the maximum compensation. If another party was wholly or partially to blame for your accident, we can seek third-party damages beyond any workers' compensation award.
