Work-Related Injuries for Truck Drivers in Cook County

The trucking industry is a critical component of the American economy. Commercial trucks transport billions of tons of freight across millions of miles on the nation's roadways each year. The men and women who drive these trucks are essential to maintaining our way of life. Those who operate local delivery trucks, box vans, and delivery vehicles are equally important. Unfortunately, on-the-job injuries are all too common in the transport industry, and truck drivers of all types are at risk for a wide range of injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Traffic Accident Injuries: When a truck is involved in an accident, the results can be devastating, and drivers can be seriously hurt or even killed in crashes. If you were in an accident caused by another party, you might be able to seek compensation from the at-fault driver through a third-party personal injury claim in addition to your workers' compensation benefits.
  • Lifting Injuries: Truck drivers, especially package and delivery drivers, are often responsible for loading and unloading their vehicles and trailers. Lifting heavy parcels or other types of cargo could leave a driver vulnerable to back injuries, muscle strains and sprains, and overexertion injuries.
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries: Sitting behind the wheel of a truck for many hours at a time can place repeated strain on a driver's back, and other repetitive motions can lead to other injuries that develop gradually over time. If you are suffering from a repetitive stress injury related to driving a truck, delivering packages, or any other work-related activity, you are likely eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
