Experienced South Bend Truck Accident Lawyer

Assisting Accident Victims of Driver Fatigue

When truck drivers get paid more for faster deliveries, they will often push themselves to limits of their physical capability to drive. This often creates serious fatigue which hinders their ability to safely operate their trucks and increases the risk of an accident that may lead to serious injuries. Truck drivers are federally mandated that they may only drive for 11 hours following a 10-hour break, and they may not exceed 60 hours of on-duty driving in a seven-day period.

These strict regulations are necessary to maintain safety of other drivers on the roads, however because not all drivers adhere to these regulations at all times, accidents due to driver fatigue can still happen. When drivers fail to adhere to the rules they are governed by and they cause an accident, you could be eligible to receive compensation.

Side Effects of Fatigue

Fatigued drivers often suffer from numerous impairments as a result of sleep-deprivation and being overworked. Because these conditions are avoidable with proper rest periods, an accident caused by fatigued drivers could make you eligible to receive compensation.

Fatigue can cause the following impairments:

  • Delayed reaction time
  • Attention lapses
  • Loss of control
  • Impaired alertness
  • Increased risk of sleeping at the wheel
