Around 4 a.m. on Friday, August 22nd, a truck driver lost control of his trailer and was forced to use an escape ramp on Sandstone Mountain to come to a stop. The steel that was being hauled shifted forward as the truck came to a stop, slamming into the cab and tearing it from its frame. The driver sustained injuries and was taken to Raleigh general hospital for treatment.
If you are a truck driver, collecting compensation following an accident can be very difficult. While technically a workplace accident, different regulations govern the rights of interstate drivers, which can seriously complicate swift and fair compensation. This is why you need an attorney on your side as soon as possible following an accident.
Workers who sustain injury in offices, on construction sites, and even in trucks and cars are entitled to fair treatment and complete compensation. The workplace injury attorneys at Hewitt & Salvatore are here to take your case and fight for your rights, helping you secure the full compensation you are due.
