A Worksite Injury Can Throw Your Life off Course
Many truck drivers regularly work with and around others at terminals, docks, warehouses, and other delivery and pickup locations.
Workers at these locations often use heavy equipment, such as forklifts, front-loaders, and cranes, that can cause serious injuries when misused. The negligence of workers at these locations often results in accidents, resulting in serious injury or death of drivers and co-workers.
As every trucker knows, workers’ training and safety protocols at delivery and pickup locations can differ significantly from location to location. Some facilities rigorously train workers and require strict compliance with safety protocols, while others do not. Truckers can be seriously injured when training is lax, and safety protocols are not followed.
Know Your Options After a Work Site Accident
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards require that employers maintain a robust safety program for their workers, and truck drivers are no exception. When employers fail to follow OSHA standards and workers are injured, the employer may be liable for damages.
If you are injured in a worksite accident or due to the negligence of another, you may have legal options for seeking damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options and pursue a claim against the negligent parties to recover damages.
