Brother... it depends... NEW

... on the "disabiltiy" and exactly what you are hauling.

Some guys mistakenly think that because they have a HM endorsement, TWIC and TSA coverage that they can haul ANY HM....

Well, they can't. They can't haul Poision Gas, Explosives and a few others.

Your insurance carrier (good luck with that) has to be willing to cover you... so, you have a disability. Time to do your homework, but not here.

Talk to the company, they will talk to their insurance company... and voila!

You will have your answer.

They will cover ALL of the angles and looking at the premiums for covering a HM driver... and what "could" happen with your disability, an incident occuring.. and that payout...

I would say "dont get your hopes up"

Now, if youre just gonna haul corrosive and oxidizers and non-flammables... they may be more lenient.

DO you homework. Ask them directly.

All those things I mentioned
: type of disability, coverage and products haule....

matter

May we know what's the disability?

And does anyone know if a person with disabilities can work ?
