Truck Drivers And Delivery Personnel Injured On Duty
Anyone who drives a truck or makes deliveries for a living is familiar with the unique job hazards, from traffic crashes to dogs to slippery sidewalks. What you may not know is that you potentially have two claims if you are on duty when you got hurt.
In addition to workers’ compensation, you have the right to sue the other driver, the property owner or other third parties. The Ypsilanti injury attorneys of Bredell & Bredell have represented commercial drivers, delivery staff and other workers injured on the job. We take cases in eastern Michigan and statewide.
Exploring All Your Claims For An On-The-Job Accident
Truck drivers and delivery workers have a high rate of injury, including:
- Motor vehicle collisions
- Loading dock accidents
- Falls from the truck
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Back injuries from lifting and carrying
- Slip-and-falls on walkways and steps
- Dog bites
Our experienced lawyers work to secure your full workers’ comp benefits, but also pursue third-party claims. A personal injury lawsuit allows you to collect damages such as pain and suffering, future medical care or permanent disability that may be capped or unavailable under your employer-paid benefits.

If driving is your livelihood, we work to ensure that you get the medical care and compensation you need to recover your health and get back to work. Call 734-482-5000, or fill out our online form.
