Truck Driver Fatigue

During long road trips, many drivers have experienced the sensation of fatigue when their eyes felt heavy and their vehicles drifted toward the shoulders. Long hours behind the wheel can be very draining. Driving while fatigued is dangerous and can lead to serious accidents. While most vacationing drivers would pull over until they are rested and safe to drive, truck drivers often feel pressured to meet tight deadlines and continue on despite lacking sleep.

San Antonio 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney

There are federal regulations that limit the number of hours truck operators can drive without rest. Truck drivers are supposed to keep driving logs to prove they are following these federal safety regulations that aim to reduce truck driver fatigue and decrease accident rates. To receive more pay and meet deadlines, many truck drivers ignore federal trucking regulations and fail to keep accurate driving logs. This negligence can be the result of improper training.

Whether it is the fault of truck drivers or employers, fatigued truck drivers frequently nod off and cause serious truck accidents. Too often, these accidents result in serious injuries and wrongful deaths. If you or a loved one was involved in a truck accident, we can help.
