Davie Truck Driver Fatigue

Truck drivers have a very important job. They not only carry important equipment and consumer products all over the country, but they are also responsible for helping to keep the roads safe. When truck drivers are negligent in following the rules regarding hours of service and other regulations, they can cause serious traffic accidents that cost lives and cause many injuries. One of the most common causes of truck accidents in Davie and across Florida is truck driver fatigue.

Have you been injured by a truck driver who may have been driving excessively long hours or without adequate rest? In many cases, commercial truck accidents involve multiple liable parties and you may be able to secure compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses if you were injured due to someone’s recklessness and negligence. If you would like to discuss your situation with a personal injury attorney and would like to get personalized advice about your situation, contact Flaxman Law Group at any time for a free consultation.

Why Does Truck Driver Fatigue Play A Role In Truck and Car Accidents?

There are many reasons why truck driver fatigue occurs:

  • Truck drivers may have a medical condition, such as sleep apnea, which causes them to be fatigued even after adequate rest
  • Truck drivers may be under pressure from motor carriers to meet deadlines and drive longer than is advisable
  • Truck drivers may violate the hours of service rules and may even falsify driver logs in order to avoid adequate rest to make more deliveries and more money

If you have been injured by a fatigued truck driver, there may be multiple liable parties involved, including the truck driver, motor carrier, and others. In many cases, however, it is difficult to prove that a truck driver was fatigued and that fatigue played a role in the accident. In many cases, personal injury attorneys in Davie and other communities work with private investigators and other professionals in order to reconstruct what happened during an accident and in order to prove that the truck driver drifted into another lane or made another preventable error that may have been caused by fatigue.
