Driver Fatigue

As a contributing factor in nearly half of all truck driver accidents in the United States, truck driver fatigue is a danger to everyone on the road. Studies have shown that driving fatigued is just as dangerous as driving drunk.

If you or a family member was injured or killed in an accident with a tractor-trailer, you likely have a case for more compensation than has been offered to you. The insurance company doesn't have your best interests at heart. Only an experienced and seasoned personal injury lawyer can help you get the maximum compensation that you deserve for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy
  • Long-term care
  • Wrongful death
  • Other hardships

Truck Drivers And Their Employers Constantly Push Legal Limits - For Example:The Tracy Morgan Accident Case, For Example

The Tracy Morgan driver fatigue case from June 2014 is a prime example of a devastating driver fatigue case and one, if you were involved in, we would be able to help you maximize your deserved compensation.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) the Wal-Mart driver in the accident that injured Tracy Morgan and killed his friend James McNair, had been driving for 9 hours and 37 minutes at the time of the crash.

He had been on the clock for 13 hours and 32 minutes, and according to New Jersey State Police, he had not slept for over 24 hours. The legal limit for a trucker's shift is 14 hours, according to federal regulations.

With 20 miles farther to go until he reached his destination, he likely wouldn't have made it by the regulated limit. Truckers and their employers encourage this type of behavior all the time.
