In a roll over semi accident and partner did it while I was in sleeper berth

In a rollover semi accident when team driver wrecked while I was in sleeper berth and after 3 months of intense physical therapy.

I am not better, shoulder was dislocated, a concussion from head injury that is not even being treated and other injuries, but the workmen's comp is only treating the shoulder injury.

I am afraid I won't be able to drive again and they are doing nothing for me but keeping me in GA.

My partner rolled the truck in K.C MO, and I was in ICU unit in MO and company made us go to GA where they are, and I wonder how to get help for the other things

I have suffered, and can I do a personal injury suit in MO where accident happened they are telling me just because I was in sleeper berth off duty because we were a team I technically was still working. Really?

I can't even simply type for a good hour how can I get help when their workman's comp doctor won't find out what else I need to fix my shoulder the ICU said I would probably need surgery but the company is calling all shots since the doctor works for them.

Has anyone been through this I am devastated. I just can't work at this any more and it has been my life for the last 20 years I didn't do anything wrong and the other team driver got out of it without a scratch of coarse he was fired.

Any help out there.

Sounds like you have a case that a lawyer would be interested in.

You were on the job but Sleeper berth means you were not working at the specific time.

Would be interesting to see how this is handled in court. Or if it would even matter.

Either way, I think the lawyer will be happy to hear about this case and see $$$ signs in the sky.

Hopefully over time your body will heal and get back to tip top condition but the trucking company should be taking better care of you to help make that process more speedy and less stressful.

Not penny pinch and avoid care.
