We Understand The Dangers Fatigued Truck Drivers Present To Innocent People
The federal government has imposed specific regulations regarding the amount of sleep and rest over-the-road truck drivers are required to have to be able to safely operate their vehicles. These regulations help protect the drivers’ own safety, but are primarily for the safety of the motorists with whom those drivers share the road.
Trucking companies too often pressure drivers to operate their trucks for longer periods than permitted. When drivers do not get enough rest or sleep, they cannot perform at the level necessary to handle and control their vehicles. If a driver is inattentive because of fatigue or falls asleep at the wheel, the truck becomes an out-of-control 80,000-pound projectile. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a fatigued driver, it is important that you seek the advice of a lawyer who knows the law and can protect your interests.
