Drowsy Driving

Have You Been Injured By a Drowsy Truck Driver?

There are very strict rules and regulations that a truck driver must follow on the job. This involves the number of hours they are allowed to drive without taking a break or resting. However, many truck drivers break the law in order to complete a job under certain time constraint. At The Maher Law Firm, we represent individuals who have been injured as a result of drowsy driving.

In order to pursuing a claim against a negligent truck driver, you must prove that they were at fault, such as in the following circumstances:

  • The trucking company made illegal or unreasonable demands
  • The driver was paid by the job, not the hour, and broke the law.
  • The driver was fatigued and exceeded their hours on duty to complete a job

Although trucking companies are not always the cause for a drowsy driver who was involved in an accident, they may be held responsible in some cases. When a truck driver behaves negligently on the job, it is often the responsibility of the company that hired him or her.
