Workers’ Compensation and Truck Drivers
Truck drivers are some of the hardest-working people out there day in and day out on the roads of North Carolina. Some truckers log hundreds of miles a day in an effort to get to their destination, unload, and get back to re-load. It is during these times of loading and unloading that many injuries occur. Truck drivers often experience back and neck strain, pulled muscles, torn ligaments, and even broken bones. While many truck drivers suffer serious injuries while loading and unloading cargo or in accidents, other common work-related tasks such as lifting a tarp and other everyday work-related physical actions can result in painful injuries. Some injuries can take place in a split second while others happen over time and may even take years to develop.
If you are a truck driver who has suffered an injury during loading or unloading, while lifting a tarp, or if you were involved in a slip, trip and fall accident in North Carolina, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. The Workers’ Compensation attorneys at White & Stradley, PLLC will listen to your story and then advise you of how to proceed.
State Workers’ Compensation Law

The Act is complicated, but the experienced Workers’ Compensation attorneys at White & Stradley, PLLC have handled countless Workers’ Compensation claims for people from all over the state of North Carolina.
