Accidents Caused By Truck Driver Fatigue

Have you been injured in a truck accident? If the accident was caused by a tired truck driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Come to Knowles Law Firm, PLC today for an initial consultation, to discuss the situation and determine whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim. The attorneys from the firm are dedicated to helping accident victims pursue justice, and they work diligently to achieve the best possible result in every case they represent. A lawyer from the firm will stand by you throughout the process of your claim, fighting to recover the settlement you deserve.

According to the Large Truck Crash Causation Study, published in 2007 by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, approximately 13% of truck accidents involved a driver who was fatigued at the time of the incident. Truckers are under intense pressure to meet delivery deadlines, and will often push beyond the limits of safety by driving long hours without breaks. An attorney from the firm will investigate every aspect of your accident, including whether the driver was in violation of trucking laws such as the federal Hours of Service regulations, to establish liability for your injuries.

Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers weigh up to 80,000 pounds, making them a liability to everyone on the road. When a trucker causes others to suffer serious injuries by choosing to drive while tired, the victims have a right to demand justice. With the help of the firm, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your medical bills, your lost wages and your pain and suffering. Knowles is a knowledgeable resource on trucking law, and can investigate accidents in order to determine if an Hours of Service violation contributed to your accident. Don't wait to begin work on your claim— call the firm today.
