Truck Driver Fatigue Is Not A Defense To Your Recovery

Commercial truck drivers are pushed to the limit every day on the roads and highways of Louisiana. With trucking companies trying to stretch every dollar to turn a profit, they sometimes are reckless in overbooking and scheduling truck drivers way past the hour limits set by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

When a driver becomes so fatigued that he or she is falling asleep behind the wheel of a big rig, you can only imagine the serious nature of crashes and accidents that can result. When an 80,000-pound truck slams into a 4,000-pound passenger vehicle, the damage can be catastrophic.

Accidents Caused by Truck Driver Fatigue

Studies have shown that sleep deprivation and driving is just as bad (and in some cases worse) than drinking and driving. Not being able to stay awake, even for just a split second, can cause major auto accidents and injuries. A fatigued truck driver may lose focus, veer off the road or fall asleep behind the wheel.

Our lawyers will work hard to prove that driver fatigue could have been prevented through tracking mileage of the truck or semi as well as going through logbooks, record books and scheduling records from the trucking company. In most truck driver fatigue cases, it is found that the driver drove way beyond hours that are reasonable for safe driving.
