Advocating For Injured Truck Drivers
When people think of trucking accidents, they often think of the occupants of the other vehicle involved, since trucks are so large. Truck drivers, however, are also often seriously hurt in trucking accidents due to rollovers and other dangerous occurrences.
At Philip J. Fulton Law Office in Columbus, we represent truck drivers in Ohio who need workers’ compensation benefits to financially survive after serious accidents leave them unable to work. Our founder, Philip J. Fulton, has been helping injured workers since 1980, and he is one of Ohio’s top authorities on workers’ compensation law. He and the rest of our attorneys can help you build a strong claim while you focus on your recovery.
Helping You Through A Complex Process
Many truck drivers run into coverage disputes with their employers and their workers’ compensation administrator when seeking workers’ compensation benefits. We can help you deal with disputes such as:
- Your employer claiming that you are an independent contractor
- You needed to purchase your own workers’ compensation insurance if you are self-employed or a contractor
- You were in an accident while driving outside of Ohio, or you are an out-of-state driver who was hurt while driving in Ohio
If you are not eligible for workers’ compensation coverage, we can help you determine other options for getting relief. This could include a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver or against your employer for not properly maintaining your truck or providing proper training.
