Driver Fatigue

Get Justice with a Fighter: Retain a Doan Law Firm Truck Accident Injury Lawyer

Approximately 30 percent of all semi-truck accidents in the United States are caused by fatigued big rig operators, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Despite very specific, hard and fast regulations, time and again commercial truck drivers operate semis well beyond the time period allowed. In other word, odds are high that whenever a motorist gets on the road, he or she is likely to face a big rig operator who is exhausted -- and dangerous.

Even though semi-truck driver regulations permits them to be on the road to 70 hours each week, many drivers routinely ignore this threshold. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, over two-thirds of semi drivers report being fatigued on half their trips. 13 percent of big rig operators reported that they had fallen asleep at the wheel.

If you have been injured in a fatigued driver truck accident, you must understand your rights and interests. You need to begin that process in a proactive manner by retaining the services of a fatigued driver truck accident injury lawyer from The Doan Law Firm at (800) 349-0000.

Justice and Compensation in a Driver Fatigue Truck Accident Injury Case

The compensation you receive in your case depends on the facts and circumstances of the accident, and the nature of the injuries, damages, and losses you sustained. With that noted, a tenacious truck accident injury lawyer from our firm, at (800) 349-000, will fight to obtain financial recovery for losses that include:

  • pain and suffering
  • medical bills and expenses
  • permanent disability and disfigurement
  • mental anguish and emotional distress
  • property loss
  • income loss

Our legal team will also fight to ensure that you obtain compensation for future losses you reasonably can be expected to face. For example, you will likely require medical care and treatment into the future because of the serious nature of truck accident injuries. You may not be able to return to work for an extended period of time. You may endure pain well into the future, if not forever. These are all examples of losses for which you deserve full compensation.

A truck accident injury lawyer from our firm understands the need to diligently press on with your claim or lawsuit until full compensation is won for you. In your case, you may be entitled to punitive damages as well.

Punitive damages represent additional money awarded to you in a lawsuit in certain situations. Punitive damages are also designed to punish the party that caused the accident for particularly reckless conduct. For example, if the big rig operator that caused the accident had been at the wheel for over 14 consecutive hours, that conduct very well may be deemed reckless by a jury in a lawsuit.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
