Colorado Attorney for Injured Truck Drivers Wins Workers' Compensation Case for Trucker Injured on the Job

LITTLETON, CO--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Colorado attorney for injured truck drivers R. Mack Babcock announces the successful outcome of a workers' compensation and insurance bad faith suit for a trucker injured on the job. The Babcock Law Firm (http://www.injurylawcolorado.com/) was able to secure approximately $310,000 in workers' compensation benefits and financial settlements for its client from his employer and its occupational accident insurance provider.

Many trucking and cab companies hire drivers as independent contractors to avoid paying certain taxes and benefits. In order for an independent contractor designation to be valid in Colorado, truck drivers must be covered through a workers' compensation policy or another policy that provides equal benefits.

"Unfortunately, many truckers injured on the job accept their employers' explanation that they are not required to pay full benefits," comments Babcock, a Colorado workers' compensation lawyer who represents injured truck drivers. "Our client was misled to believe he only qualified for partial benefits when statutes explicitly state he is entitled to full workers' compensation benefits."

In addition to the claim, a bad faith case was filed seeking damages for the way the claim was handled.

The Babcock Law Firm has succeeded in obtaining benefits for every truck driver workers' compensation case it has taken on, even when injured truckers had been told by other Colorado workers' compensation attorneys they had no case. Babcock explains, "It's imperative that injured truck drivers find a workers' comp attorney in Colorado who is well versed in these types of cases."
