Workers Compensation Insurance
Most insurance companies don’t like to provide workers compensation to trucking companies due to the difficulty assessing the risk.
When it comes to workers compensation, the trucking industry can be difficult to insure. Many times a trucking company is located in one state such as Tennessee, the truck drivers live in other states, and the workers compensation injury occurs in yet another state. At Mid South Truckers Group, we only deal with the trucking industry, so we have the experience and the knowledge to put together a workers comp package that protects both the trucking company and the drivers.
According to a recent Atlas Ergonomics study, truck drivers are at a high risk of developing musculoskeletal injuries. In fact, drivers lose the most workdays due to musculoskeletal disorder incidents of all workers in the U.S. This is due to the many hours of sitting, followed by brief periods of strenuous labor loading and unloading the truck. Combined with the risk of road accidents, trucking can be a very dangerous profession.
From our office in Tennessee, we can provide workers compensation insurance that is affordable for both motor carriers and owner operator groups, and offers the most protection to drivers. Our coverage provides insurance for situations such as:
- Vehicle accidents
- Accidents while loading or unloading
- Slips and falls
- Strains and backs injuries
- Carpal tunnel injury
