Pottsville Commercial Driver Injury Lawyers
Sometimes work-related injuries happen outside of work property. If you are a commercial driver or were driving in a work-related capacity when injured in an accident, you are entitled to all the rights and remedies under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law to pay for your medical care, disability and lost wages. Depending on the circumstances, you may also have the right to sue third parties for personal injury damages.
Skilled Legal Assistance For Those Who Drive On The Job
At Lieberman, Tamulonis & Hobbs, we represent truck drivers, commercial drivers (CDL licensed), emergency personnel and other employees injured while driving or riding in a vehicle in a work-related capacity. This includes being injured while traveling between sales calls, making deliveries or running off-site errands for your employer. Many of our clients include:
- Commercial truck drivers
- Sales professionals
- Delivery drivers
- Police, fire and rescue workers
- Bus drivers and taxi drivers
- Construction workers
- Home service workers (exterminators, cable installers)
Even if you were at fault for your accident, you are still covered by workers’ compensation. Our lawyers will work to ensure you obtain quality medical care, maximum wage benefits and full compensation for disability. We will fight for your rights if your employer denies your claim or interferes with your rights under the law.
What If Someone Else Caused My Accident?
If your work-related truck accident or car collision was caused by a third party (another driver, a negligent co-worker) or a defect or maintenance issue of a company vehicle, you may have grounds to sue the negligent party for damages above and beyond workers’ compensation. We can investigate your potential claim and help you explore your rights and options.
