Fatigue and Truck Accidents

Despite DOT (Department of Transportation) regulations, many truck drivers are still driving more than they should be. This causes serious issues with fatigue, which is a leading cause of truck accidents. Any truck accident law firm will give you a history of the cases that they have handled, and it will be easy for you to see how fatigue played a role in so many more cases than people might even realize. If you take the time to check out all of the different instances of truck accidents, fatigue will be a lot more prevalent than you realize.

With truck driving, it's a business. However, the people who are driving these trucks are often put under pressures that no one should have to endure. Add to that the fact that they are driving vehicles that are much bigger than passenger cars, and you've got a recipe for disaster around every curve. It's important for drivers to be extra cautious because getting involved in a truck accident usually never ends well for anyone. Of course, it's not fair that drivers have to be extra careful, but life isn't really fair in a lot of ways.

A truck accident law firm can educate you on everything that you need to know about these accidents and why they happen. While the truckers aren't always at fault, there are usually more cases where they are than not. What's more is that when the blame is on them, it becomes an issue of personal safety for anyone involved because the situation is so severe with such a large piece of machinery. You should always talk to a truck accident law firm about your case because the chances are good that you're entitled to compensation for what you've been through, but you have to ask for it.

Any qualified truck accident law firm will understand the laws behind truck driving. They will be able to take things like DOT regulations, log book violations, driving histories, and other elements into account when they are explaining your case and why you deserve the compensation that you seek in your settlement. They will also help you to better understand what you are dealing with so that you aren't uninformed about the case that you are dealing with. Fatigue is a serious issue in many truck accidents, which is why you need to make sure that you're fighting back to help encourage safer driving habits for truckers around the country.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
