Workers’ Compensation Available To Truck Drivers In California
Most truck drivers in California are covered by workers’ compensation. If you are injured while operating your vehicle or while carrying out any other duties involved in the scope of your work, you may file a workers’ compensation claim.
The exact workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to receive depend on a variety of factors, such as the nature and extent of your injuries, the duties involved in your employment, whether or not you contributed to the accident/incident through negligence and more. Note that if you are found to have negligently contributed to the incident that led to your injuries, you may not be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
Generally speaking, truck drivers who suffer on-the-job injuries may be entitled to receive the following workers’ compensation benefits:
- Compensation for the cost of medical treatment
- Temporary and/or permanent disability benefits (lost wages)
- Supplemental job displacement benefits (retraining/skill enhancement)
Additionally, if a truck driver is killed due to an accident or other work-related incident, his or her surviving family members (spouse, children and other dependents) may be able to recover death benefits.
