Trucker Injuries Because Of Heavy Equipment
There is nothing soft about driving a truck for a living. The rigs are heavy, long and too wide for the road. Every piece of equipment – from the cab’s front bumper to the trailer’s rear doors – is heavy and bulky. Truckers must deal with it all, and not without danger of suffering serious injuries.
