Truck Driver Fatigue Accidents
Truck driver fatigue accidents call for aggressive representation
Regulations limit the amount of time truckers can spend on the road. At the same time, long-haul truckers are under pressure to deliver their cargo quickly. The longer they stay behind the wheel, the more they get paid.
Truckers may break the rules to cover more ground. Unfortunately, this can lead to truck driver fatigue accidents. A drowsy trucker or a trucker who has fallen asleep behind the wheel can have traumatic consequences, resulting in injuries ranging from broken bones to traumatic brain injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that truck driver fatigue may be the cause of 40 percent of all 18-wheeler accidents.
