Man still recovering from devastating workplace injury

A typical workday turned tragic for an over-the-road trucker, when he was struck from behind by a front-end loader, causing him to injure his arm and leg. This workplace injury has been devastating for this man to recover from.

Last December, the man 54, was waiting to pick up a load for his truck when he was accidentally struck from behind by a front-end loader. The crash caused him to injure his left arm and it crushed his right leg. He was flown via helicopter to the hospital where he underwent several surgeries in order to save his life. Doctors had to remove his right leg above the knee, because it was beyond repair.

It's been three months since the accident and the man is still a patient at the hospital and is making a slow recovery. The injuries he has sustained have changed his life forever. Once he is a little stronger, he will be moved to an acute care rehabilitation facility.

The trucking company he works for has been supportive of the man since the accident and is doing everything it can to help him through this.

Workplace accidents do happen, but it's the support and compensation that you receive after such an accident that matter to you the most when you've been injured. If you've been involved in a workplace accident, you should seek the advice of a personal injury attorney. They understand what you are going through and will work to get you the compensation that you deserve.

It is unclear if and when this man might be able to return to work, but he has been a delivery driver for 30 years and an over-the-road driver for the past 10 years.
