Truck Accidents Caused by Drowsy Drivers
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 a certain time constraint. At The
Maher Law Firm, we represent individuals who have been injured as a result
of drowsy driving.
In order to pursue 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 a
truck 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.
