DEALING WITH EMPLOYER NEGLIGENCE: FIGHTING FOR YOUR BEST INTERESTS
Employer negligence in trucking accidents can occur in several different ways. The employer could:
- Fail to maintain the truck properly
- Pressure the driver to the point of exhaustion or stress
- Hire an unqualified driver
- Fail to properly train a driver
TIRED TRUCK DRIVER ACCIDENT CLAIMS
Drivers who are physically and mentally tired are a safety threat on the roadways. While it is understandable that long hours of driving can result in exhaustion, it is unacceptable for drivers to endanger others by continuing to drive if not well rested. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident involving a driver who had insufficient rest, you need the services of an experienced attorney – before you file a claim or attempt to deal with insurance companies.
Tired truck drivers behind the wheel can pose an even greater threat than the typical driver because commercial trucks weigh tens of thousands of pounds more than cars. Despite regulations meant to prevent truck drivers from driving with insufficient rest, driver fatigue continues to contribute to a substantial percentage of all tractor-trailer crashes.
