We all know what the trucking industry is, but what is intermodal? According to www.businessdictionary.com the definition of intermodal is movement of containerized (unitized) cargo over air, land, or sea through the use of different transport modes (aircraft, truck, rail, boats, ships, barges, etc.) capable of handling containers.
Besides the typically expected motor vehicle accidents, some less thought of injuries can also occur in this industry, as in others. These include bodily reaction injuries that can occur when you dislocate body parts, overstress joints, or pull muscles while trying to prevent yourself from falling after tripping or slipping on a surface. These injuries can also occur while trying to carry objects up or down stairs, or lifting at an awkward angle, throwing yourself off balance.
Another type of serious injury is being physically pinned between equipment or objects, such as the floor, a wall, supporting pole, crates, moving machinery, loading docks, or appliances. At Robinson Law, we have represented claimants with these types of injuries and understand the dynamics of the same, including prolonged treatment programs sometimes necessary for such injuries.
