Fatigued Truck Driver Accidents

Trusted Attorneys Fighting on Behalf of the Injured in Orange County

Truck drivers feel extreme pressure to cover as much ground as possible, no matter what it takes. This is because their pay is almost always directly linked to the more they travel, which incentivizes many drivers to overexert themselves and consequently risk the lives of all others on the road. Despite hours-of-services regulations enforced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, many trucking companies breach these guidelines in the interest of profit. Our team at the Law Office of Marshall Silberberg has successfully fought for countless innocent drivers, passengers, motorists, and pedestrians who have suffered at the hands of a fatigued driver.

Long hours spent in traffic are extremely monotonous and exhausting for even the most experienced and alert truck driver. Driver fatigue is responsible for a significant percentage of trucking accidents and has become an intrinsic part of the industry. This frightening reality increases the chances of a devastating and fatal accident. Because drivers feel obligated to meet a nearly impossible schedule, they may partake in unsafe behaviors such as speeding, pushing through rush-hour traffic, illegal maneuvers, failing to take breaks, etc. Sometimes, drivers attempt to combat drowsiness by taking drugs or stimulants to stay awake.

While the individual driver’s behavior must be addressed and examined, trucking companies are most often liable for these accidents. As truck accidents continue to rise throughout the nation, the FMCSA has outlined strict regulations which restrict driving schedules and require minimal hours of rest. However, the trucking industry has a long way to go in order to truly reach acceptable standards of safety.
