Large truck drivers and workplace accidents

From construction site incidents to a mine collapse, people may envision a number of disasters when they think of workplace accidents. However, if you drive a large truck, such as a bus or a semi truck, you face a number of unique on-the-job risks in San Bernardino and all over California. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand the serious nature of workplace accidents, especially for those who operate large trucks.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, over 400,000 large truck collisions were reported to law enforcement officials over the course of 2014. Among these crashes, 82,000 caused an injury and over 3,000 led to the loss of life. Each day, those who drive semis and other trucks put their lives on the line while trying to perform their job duties. Sadly, these wrecks will continue to result in fatalities and leave drivers with disabilities that keep them away from work. Sometimes, occupational injuries cause difficulties that follow people around for their entire lives.

If you are driving a large truck, you may face all sorts of threats. For example, another driver who is speeding or drunk could cause an accident and you may experience financial problems because you cannot work due to a injury. Furthermore, you may be hurt while working because of bad signage or inclement weather. If you are struggling with any of these hardships, you may want to see if you are eligible for workers' compensation.
