Truck Driver Fatigue

All too often, truck accidents are the result of truck driver fatigue. When a trucker becomes overly tired but continues to drive, he or she is more likely to make unsafe driving maneuvers, veer into oncoming traffic or otherwise put his or her follow motorists in danger.

If you have been injured in a trucking accident, it is important to find out whether truck driver fatigue was the cause or a contributing factor. At The Martin Law Firm, we have helped many clients who have been hurt in semi truck accidents obtain this information and use it to hold negligent truckers and their employers accountable for the damage they caused.

Our clients work directly with attorney Gregory A. Martin. Gregg is board-certified in personal injury and trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has spent more than 25 years fighting for injured clients. The personal service you receive will give you with the peace of mind that can only be gained by knowing an experienced advocate is watching out for your interests through all stages of your case.

No Matter The Cause Of Truck Driver Fatigue, You Need Experienced Counsel Now

Truck driver fatigue can result from a wide range of circumstances, all of which lead to drivers staying on the road for an unsafe amount of time. Some of these reasons include:

  • Over-scheduling
  • Ignoring hours-on-the-road requirements
  • Making up for drive time lost to truck maintenance
  • Tight deadlines
  • Delays due to road construction and detours
  • Short turnaround times

No matter the reason, when a trucker stays on the road longer than he or she should, becomes fatigued and causes an accident, those who have been harmed by his or her conduct should seek legal representation as soon as possible. Trucking companies and their insurance companies are always concerned about the potential payout in trucking accidents, so they will act quickly to obtain evidence and minimize their liability. We can help you stand up to these companies and seek the full compensation that you need to facilitate your recovery, make up for lost salary and cover all of the other damages you have incurred.
