Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits that Might be Available to You

If you have been injured in an accident while you were driving a truck on the job, you could make a claim for various workers’ compensation benefits. In many instances, truck accidents can result in injuries that lead to a significant amount of medical treatment, including doctor follow-ups, medical procedures (such as injections and surgeries), and missed work time.

As part of a workers’ compensation claim for benefits, you could obtain monetary compensation for all of your related medical treatment and a portion of your lost wages. Some truck accidents are so serious that accident victims suffer a permanent disability or injury. When a health care provider determines that you have suffered a permanent injury and reached a level of maximum medical improvement, you may be eligible to obtain a permanency award of compensation. 

How Can a Matthews Workers’ Compensation Attorney Assist You?

If you have suffered an injury in a truck accident that occurred while you were on the job, an experienced Matthews workers’ compensation lawyer can help.

If you were injured to such an extent that you can no longer work in the trucking industry, your attorney could help you obtain vocational rehabilitation training. Finally, an attorney can be present with you at all workers’ compensation hearings when legal issues and disputes arise.
