What to Do After an Injury

Make sure you understand your company’s policies and report the injury or accident to a supervisor as soon as possible. This is incredibly important, as many policies specify an extremely short reporting window. Quickly reporting all of the details before your memory fades will give you the best chance to get the compensation you need.

When a driver is injured they must also face the stricter insurance policies that commercial trucking companies employ in order to protect their business. This means that an adjuster will not have your best interest in mind and is not in the business of paying you the full amount of compensation that you deserve.
