Workers’ Compensation for Transportation/Logistics Workers
Transportation/Logistics workers are key drivers of the infrastructure of New York State. According to Nyc.gov’s Employment in New York City’s Transportation Sector Report, New York City is among the most vibrant transportation hubs in the nation, consistently ranking first among U.S. cities in passenger miles flown, transit passenger miles, and truck freight volume in the country.
Hazards on the Job
Transportation/Logistics workers are exposed to a number of hazards, including:
- Musculoskeletal disorders caused by frequent heavy manual lifting
- Hazardous traffic/road conditions due to inclement weather
- Increased risk of slip and fall injuries
Are all Transportation/Logistics Workers Covered?
Transportation/Logistics workers are entitled to workers’ compensation coverage. Part-time workers and ‘borrowed/leased’ employees are also entitled to workers’ compensation coverage.
After a Workplace Injury
If you are injured on the job, or develop workplace related illness, notify your employer as soon as possible. Many seek the aid of a Workers’ Compensation attorney because filing and collecting Workers’ compensation is often a complicated process.
