When a Truck Driver is Injured at Work

At the Crawford Law Office, we represent injured truck drivers in Lincoln, throughout Nebraska and across the United States. We have more than 20 years of experience handling workers’ compensation cases and we are prepared to put that experience to work to get you the compensation you are entitled to.

No matter where you live and no matter where your injury occurred, if you are an employee of Crete Carrier Corporation, Werner Enterprises/Drivers Management Incorporated (DMI) or any other trucking company, you can be confident that our law firm can help you.

How Did Your Injury Happen?

We handle all head, neck and spine injuries, as well as all other injures caused by:

  • Loading and unloading cargo
  • Falling loads
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Forklift accidents
  • Truck accidents

We Know Our Opponents

Our law firm has filed many lawsuits against Crete Carrier Corporation, Werner Enterprises /Drivers Management Incorporated (DMI) and other trucking companies. We know our opponents and we know the tactics they use to avoid paying workers’ compensation.

Some common tactics that these companies use in workers’ compensation cases include:

  • Sending you to a different doctor: Under Nebraska law, if you have a family doctor, you can seek treatment from your family doctor. The trucking company will try to get you to see a doctor they pick, a doctor that inevitably will side with them. If the doctor they send you to doesn’t side with them, they will send you to yet another doctor.
  • Miscalculating your average weekly wage: Workers’ comp is based on average weekly wage. Since your wage may vary from week to week, the trucking company will try to lowball you on compensation by miscalculating your average weekly wage.
  • Terminating you: Trucking companies are often very aggressive and will even fire an employee in an attempt to cut off a claim.

If you encounter any of these tactics, contacting a lawyer is critical. Even if you don’t, we recommend that you get in touch with us to make certain you get the workers’ comp benefits you deserve.

No Fees Unless We Get Results

We handle all workers’ compensation cases for truckers on a contingency basis. You don’t have to pay any attorney fees unless we get results for you.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Our insurance agent told us NOT TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY. After the insurance company lied to us several times. We hired another attorney. We had him about six months and never saw him, just his wife. I couldn't tell you what the guy looked like. We fired him and hired Dennis. He came to my home and treated my family like family. Best decision I even made! We got 10 times more than we expected! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND DENNIS CRAWFORD!

Shelley

I was getting shafted by my job, by the medical insurance company and even by my fellow co-workers. I felt surrounded on all sides, and Crawford fired right back at the scumbags and gave them a good fight. My case is long and complicated but during the entire time with Dennis, I felt like someone had my back, like they were watching over me and anytime I had a problem, it was solved. Crawford responds right away, to any inquiry, at the moment. His expertise in talking to me, made me feel assured and I walked out of his office prepared to fight for my rights and the basic compensation I knew I deserved.

Nik

Dennis is awesome to work with. He was diligent in pursuing the case, communication was excellent, and he obtained a very favorable settlement in a very timely way.

Mary

Dennis Crawford was courteous and professional. He made it a point to call me back in order to answer my questions in a timely manner. Mr. Crawford kept me informed and updated.
