If you have been injured on the job, you deserve workers' compensation benefits — but you may be entitled to more.
If your injury was caused by the negligence of a third party (that is, not your employer or a fellow employee), you have the right to file a personal injury claim. Personal injury law allows you to pursue compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Other damages not covered under workers' compensation law
At Trucker Lawyers, we are committed to helping injured truck drivers pursue maximum compensation for the losses they have suffered due to job injuries. Our Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, attorneys can represent you in all aspects of your workers' comp claim as well as any personal injury litigation that arises from your on-the-job injury.
We serve injured truckers in Nebraska, Iowa and throughout the U.S.
Examples Of Third-Party Claims
For truck drivers, careless drivers are a constant source of danger and the most common cause of third-party liability accidents. Distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, lane violations — these and other behaviors can leave you with stacks of medical bills, wage loss and other severe hardships. You have the right to pursue compensation for your losses, and we can help.
Other examples of third-party accidents include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents and other injuries occurring on dangerous premises
- Defective trucking equipment and other dangerous products
- Faulty truck maintenance
- Negligence on the part of other workers such as forklift operators and truck loaders
- Exposure to toxic substances
Our law firm has the experience and resources to investigate the causes of accidents and identify all liable parties. Workers' compensation benefits help, but they may not be enough to help you rebuild your life after this accident. Our lawyers are here to make sure you get everything you deserve.
