Gardner Trucking Work Injury
Regardless of whether you, or a family member, are injured while working in a local Gardner Trucking facility, or while driving a truck inside or outside of California, you may have rights under California Workers’ Compensation laws.
In some cases, trucking companies try to tell injured workers that they are not covered by workers’ compensation laws in the State of California, as they are “independent contractors.” What you need to know is that just because a company calls an employee an “independent contractor,” it does not mean the injured worker is really an independent contractor.
If you or a loved one is involved in an accident while working for Gardner Trucking, regardless of where the injuries occurred, it’s important for you to partner with an experienced work injury attorney who will aggressively represent you.
Injuries suffered in trucking related accidents can be devastating. Because of employee’s physical exposure, trucking accidents can result in catastrophic injury and in some cases even death. The Law Offices of Michael J Holmes will pursue your legal rights – regardless of whether they are financial compensation, medical expenses, housing, nursing, or any other need as permitted by law.
