Do Truck Drivers Get Workers' Compensation?

The answer to this will depend largely on what kind of employee you are. For truckers who are employed directly by the trucking company, you are most likely covered by the company's workers' compensation insurance. However, for drivers who are considered "owner-operators" you may or may not be covered by workers' compensation. This type of employee often is given opportunity to purchase their own insurance coverage (Occupational Accident Injury Coverage) and may not have the option of filing for workers' compensation.

If you are confused about whether or not you may be covered by workers' comp as a trucker, reach out to Adler Firm today to discuss your accident and your employment status.

Fighting for Full, Fair Injury Compensation or Long-Term Disability Benefits

Truck driver injuries come in many forms and can happen in a wide range of ways. Lifting, loading, or unloading a truck can cause a serious injury, just as a collision can.

We will investigate and offer counsel after:

  • A highway, street, or parking accident in your semi, tractor-trailer rig, delivery, or construction vehicle—regardless of whether you believe you or another driver was at fault
  • You have suffered a back, shoulder, neck, knee, or other physical injury that will keep you from performing your job duties for at least eight days
  • You have been diagnosed with a heart condition, mental impairment, or other serious ailment that makes truck driving an unacceptable risk

Versatility across the areas of law that impact truck drivers and other industrial workers is an important strength for our southeast Michigan law firm. As a proven truck driver injury lawyer in Michigan, Barry Adler offers extensive personal attention and the ability to pursue your workers’ compensation, personal injury, or Social Security Disability claim through all necessary phases.
