Hold Fatigued Drivers Responsible

Our San Angelo Personal Injury Lawyers are Ready to Help You

Were you involved in a truck accident that was caused by a fatigued driver? If so, you might be eligible to receive compensation, and you may want to contact our San Angelo personal injury attorneys at Webb, Stokes & Sparks. Truck drivers are often embarking on long drives, travelling from state to state or even across the country. This means that they are driving for extended periods of time, and throughout all hours of the night. Such long and late-night travels can make truck drivers more susceptible to exhaustion and fatigue. Driver fatigue and sleep deprivation is one of the most common causes of truck accidents.

Driving while fatigued can cause truck drivers to:

  • Fall asleep
  • Be careless
  • Ignore signs forewarning them to take precaution
  • Panic or freeze up
  • Over- or underreact to a situation

Due to the set of federal regulations known as the "hours of service rules", truck drivers must abide by a set of rules in order to avoid accidents caused by driver fatigue and sleep deprivation. If you suspect that your accident was caused by a driver who was fatigued or fell asleep, it may benefit you and your case to determine if they were in violation of the hours of service rules.
