With decades of combined experience fighting the trucking industry, the attorneys at The Hamilton Firm provide expert legal assistance and professional, practical advocacy to truck drivers injured on the job. The firm has represented hundreds of truck drivers injured in all sorts of situations, from road wrecks, to falls, to lifting injuries, to heart attacks and assaults. Knowledge of complex federal regulations, as well as applicable state law is essential. Injuries can occur on the road, far from home. While workers’ compensation laws generally provide for medical treatment and some disability benefits after an injury on the job, available benefits can vary greatly from state to state. Expert advice is essential. Navigating conflicting laws and regulations and dealing with insurance adjusters can be a daunting task.
Our mission is to provide high quality, effective legal representation to drivers injured on the job emphasizing personal attention and service to our clients. The Hamilton Firm also handles a variety of other serious injury, wrongful death and workers’ compensation cases, including automobile accidents, trucking accidents, industrial accidents, construction site accidents, premises liability, products liability and medical malpractice, and assists clients with Social Security and other long term disability claims.
If you are a truck driver and have been injured on the job, contact The Hamilton Firm to ensure that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled. With some exceptions, trucking companies are generally required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, so most drivers are covered. Even if you are an independent contractor who has been injured on the job, call us, so we can evaluate whether you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
