What If I Was Working When I Was Hit?
Given the size of commercial trucks and the challenge of resolving claims with trucking companies, all truck accident claims are complex. If you were hit by a large truck while you were working, it can complicate your case even further. Disputes over liability, insurance and damages can delay or compromise the compensation you need to get on with your life.
Whether the truck that hit you belongs to your employer or another third party, you have options to pursue compensation for your injuries and losses. At Volkema Thomas, LLC, our lawyeres can help you explore them and develop a plan to recover the maximum possible amount.

Can I Collect Workers’ Compensation?
To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you generally must have been injured in the course of your employment. However, that does not necessarily mean you were hurt on company property. Job-related errands, deliveries, travel to off-site meetings and other work-related travel may qualify.
It is important to know that if you receive workers’ compensation benefits, you may have to reimburse your employer for those benefits from the proceeds of any personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. At Volkema Thomas, LLC, we have successfully handled cases just like yours, and will work to maximize your recovery.
