Representing the Best Interests of Commercial Truck & Delivery Drivers
Commercial truckers and delivery drivers play a crucial part in keeping the US economy rolling—but driving can be dangerous work. Accidents are a fact of life on the road and trucking can lead to many physical ailments and serious injury. Here at Biggam Fox Skinner, our Vermont commercial driver injury lawyers know what you are up against, and we understand it’s more than icy Vermont roads.
Helping You Reclaim Your Life
It is important that you aren’t left a victim of the hard work you have done. If you have suffered in any way from your work as a truck or delivery driver, whether in an accident or over the long term, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. You may work for UPS, FedEx, Casella, AgriMark-Cabot Creamery, Keurig-Green Mountain, Shaw’s, Hannafords, or other firms using commercial drivers, and you want to receive compensation where it has been denied. Our attorneys at Biggam Fox Skinner LLP can help you secure the benefits you deserve.
Accident or Repetitive Motion Injuries? We Can Help
Trucking accidents can occur with brake failure, negligent operation by other drivers, rollovers, and jackknifing. Or perhaps you have spent years lifting heavy cargo and now have herniated discs, joint or muscle pain, or need surgery. We have helped countless clients just like you, and are already familiar with every mishap you may have dealt with in your professional driving career.
Common injuries for truckers and delivery drivers include:
Neck, spine, and lower back injuries
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) or post-concussive syndrome
Lower extremity injuries
Lifting and falling injuries
Motor vehicle accidents
Loss of limbs and appendages
When Should I Pursue a Third-Party Claim?
When you are involved in a motor vehicle or other accident at work and someone other than your employer was at fault, you may be able to receive further compensation in addition to workers’ compensation. Subrogation and exclusivity of workers’ compensation in Vermont are complex legal issues and we can advise you when it is in your best interest to pursue a claim against a third party who may be responsible.
