Trucker suffers work injuries on the road

The word "workplace" is often associated with offices lined with cubicles and computers. Realistically, the workplace looks different for everyone. For some Texas workers, it is behind a sales counter or serving food, while for others it can be behind the wheel of a vehicle. Understanding the wide range of applications of this word as well as the scope of work duties can be useful when injured workers need to seek compensation for work injuries.

A recent accident left one woman dead and sent another man to the hospital. According to police, a 66-year-old woman was driving too fast for the weather conditions at the time of the wreck. She ended up losing control of her vehicle, colliding with an oncoming tractor-trailer.

The driver who police say caused the wreck died while still at the scene of the accident. The tractor-trailer driver was apparently on the job when he was hit by the alleged negligent driver, and was sent to the hospital for treatment. He was released from the hospital's care a short while later.

Work injuries can take time to develop, and issues that might initially seem minor can actually grow worse with time. Dealing with the associated medical bills and lost wages of such injuries is often too much for the average Texas worker to handle, so getting the right compensation is important. While it might feel uncomfortable to pursue compensation through an employer's workers' comp insurance coverage, doing so can be essential for recovery and financial security.
