Client Success Story
We represented a man who drove trucks and stocked inventory for a multi-national products wholesaler. The worker suffered an injury to his lumbar spine as a result of lifting heavy objects at work.
The employer and its insurer discontinued his worker compensation benefits arguing that he suffered from pre-existing lumbar spine disease. Despite this, Attorney Kristen Gyolai fought the insurance company to secure the worker a settlement of $100,000 for his work injury.
Common Transportation Injuries
Because transportation workers are often in vehicles traveling at high speed, they can suffer serious injuries during accidents, such as:
- Head and Neck Injuries
Truck, bus, and car accidents can put large amounts of force on the drivers’ bodies. This force can cause painful injuries to their heads and necks that may lead to disability and even become life-threatening.
- Stress-Related Injuries
Longhaul truck drivers may be on the road for nearly all of their waking hours for days or even weeks at a time. Sitting in the same position for long periods of time can put stress on muscles and joints and cause pain and injuries.
- Crushing and Impact Injuries
Turbulence can disrupt flights and cause airplanes to move erratically in the sky. Although passengers are often secured in their seats when turbulence strikes, flight attendants have no protection and may get crushed by debris or luggage inside the aircraft.
