Fatigue Is a Common Cause of Trucking Accidents
Many of these accidents are caused directly or indirectly by driver fatigue. Tired drivers don’t look past the blind spot in their mirror. They run red lights in town. They fail to look for pedestrians, motorcycles and bicycles. They slide through stop signs. Tired drivers fall asleep at the wheel, crossing the centerline and hitting oncoming vehicles.
Truck drivers are subject to many state and federal regulations designed to reduce fatigue and prevent accidents on the road. In addition to driver fatigue, these regulations work to prevent truck overload, alcohol abuse and unsecured loads. When a truck driver or trucking company fails to follow these regulations, it can lead to serious accidents. We can help you hold the negligent driver or company accountable for your truck accident injuries.
If you have been injured by any type of truck, contact an attorney who works to help you recover.
