Injured by a Tired Truck Driver?
Turn to Our Fulton County Personal Injury Lawyers
A common cause of commercial truck accidents is truck driver fatigue. Truck
drivers are sometimes required to operate their truck for long hours before
resting and some drivers simply choose not to rest to make their deadlines,
both of which can result in extreme fatigue and impaired judgment while
behind the wheel. If you were injured by a truck driver who neglected
to get the rest they need, you may be able to recover a claim for compensation
to pay for your injuries.

Our Firm Works on Behalf of the Injured
Although truck drivers are required to rest after a certain number of hours
of driving by federal mandate, some choose to ignore these regulations.
Trucking companies have a vested interest in delivering their goods quickly,
and this may lead them to push their drivers to drive long hours without rest.
Our firm can put a strong claim together by:
- Working with experts in the field
- Interviewing any witnesses to the accident
- Looking over police reports
- Reviewing crash data, including the black boxes
- Checking the trucker’s driving record to see if they rested as required by law
Federal regulations also mandate trucking companies and their drivers maintain
a record of how many hours a driver was able to rest every day along with
how often the truck was repaired. This information can be vitally important
in proving negligence on the part of the truck driver who injured you.
