The Dangers Of Truck Driver Fatigue
Driving commercial trucks is a demanding job. Truck drivers are often forced to push their bodies past their natural limits to make deadlines and increase profits. This creates a dangerous road hazard that puts innocent lives at risk. If you have been injured in a truck accident caused by driver fatigue, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you explore your right to compensation.
The New York and Jersey truck accident lawyers of Albert Buzzetti & Associates have more than 15 years’ experience investigating and litigating personal injury and wrongful death claims related to truck accidents. Contact us today to speak with an experienced New Jersey truck driver fatigue lawyer.
Some Truckers Ignore The Limits
State and federal laws limit the number of hours a truck driver can work per day, per week and on consecutive days. Truck drivers often push these limits, compelled by their employers’ demands or their own pursuit of profit.
If you have been injured in a truck accident caused by driver fatigue, our lawyers are prepared to help. We thoroughly investigate truck accident cases and will search for all available evidence that supports your case.
In some cases, drivers falsify logbooks or maintain two driver logs to hide the fact they were breaking the rules. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may look for evidence in driver logs, hotel receipts, cellphone bills and other sources that can help us determine the truth about the driver’s hours.
We understand the hardships facing truck accident victims and are dedicated to helping our clients obtain justice and compensation for the losses they have suffered.
