Fatigue Causing Truck Accidents
- June 24, 2013
- Truck Accidents
Most truck drivers in the Dallas-Forth Worth area are safe and conscientious in operating their vehicles. They do their best to make sure they drive safely. However, their companies often set unrealistic schedules for them. This forces many truck drivers to drive through the night in an effort to meet their timetables.
Fatigue is one of the most common causes of truck accidents that our lawyers see. Truck drivers desperate to deliver a heavy load of cargo to a distant destination are often sleep-deprived, which reduces their reaction times and puts everyone on the road in danger.
Our truck accident lawyers are acutely aware of the fact that collisions involving these massive 18-wheelers are almost always devastating in scale and effect. The catastrophic injuries that result cause significant pain and suffering, as well as substantial financial and emotional hardship.
Truck accidents can be complicated cases, as there are often multiple liable parties. The company that put out a schedule forcing its drivers to work while sleep-deprived can be held liable for an accident. Our truck accident lawyers understand how liability works in these cases and how best to pursue justice and compensation for your injuries.
