I was a truck driver for a company hauling steel. I was hit by the steel the customers were unloading causing a head injury on February 28, 2018. I returned to work on September 25, 2018. I was denied the chance to drive again and given an office job. The

On February 28, 2018 while being unloaded I was hit by a piece of steel. I was knocked down and hit my head and my left leg was broken also. They told me they could not get the video from the customer, but a couple of employees have told me they did see the video. They only let me set in the office getting paid per hour the same as I was paid while driving. They have not given me anything to do here, I feel they want me to quit.
