Many truck drivers are under the false impression that unless they sustain physical injuries in the nature of broken bones, etc., they do not have a Workers’ Compensation claim. Because of the nature of the work that is involved in truck driving especially long-haul truck drivers, the driver is in a sitting position most of the time. In many drivers, this leads to the development of circulation problems, especially in the lower extremities or phlebitis. Phlebitis, in and of itself, can become very disabling and painful. This condition is recognized as being work related and would entitle the truck driver to both wage losses and medical benefits.
