Driving a truck is a difficult, difficult job. Long hours, lots of time spent away from home … all while doing physically demanding work, many times in unsafe environments.
It is small wonder that truck drivers suffer on-the-job injuries with frightening regularity. Sadly, when the injury is reported into the company, they are often not given the help they need to assert their rights – and worse, are provided with bad information.
We developed this site as a resource for truck drivers – to help them find attorneys in the area where they were hurt to help them answer the questions they have about the worker’s compensation system and help them protect their rights.Learn more

The trucking company and their insurance company have knowledge, skill, and experience on their side trying to keep truck drivers from receiving all of the benefits they are entitled to after an on-the-job accident. Getting the benefits you are entitled to helps you keep a roof over your family’s head, food on your table, and access to medical care to help you make a full recovery and get back to work. Get the help you need today. There are no charges for getting information or contacting a lawyer through Rights of Injured Truckers and you are not obligated to hire an attorney if you do.

Have you been told you cannot get worker’s comp because you are an independent contractor? That is probably false, and hiring the right lawyer can make all the difference.
Do you know what your rights are as an employee of a trucking company? Not knowing can cost you thousands of dollars and access to quality medical care.
Is there someone else to blame for your work accident? Unsure if you can sue them or not? You can likely pursue worker’s comp and a liability lawsuit.
What happens if you got into a wreck with someone without enough insurance to cover the damages? Even if you don’t know it, you may have underinsured coverage.
