Driver Exhaustion Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Truck Driver Exhaustion

Injured in a truck accident due to truck driver exhaustion?

Getting in the car to drive to work each day necessarily requires sharing the road with an increasing number of large trucks or "Commercial Motor Vehicles" (CMVs). What is not known as you travel alongside one of these CMVs is how long that truck driver has been driving without sleep. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, a CMV driver can drive up to 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off duty. He can be on duty for up to 14 hours total which includes driving and other non-driving tasks. If you add tightened shipping schedules to the mix, causing the driver to push the limit, too often this situation is a recipe for disaster.

A fully loaded tractor-trailer rig at 80,000 pounds barreling down the freeway with an exhausted, sleepy driver has the potential for dire consequences. The injuries from a collision with a vehicle of this size and weight can be deadly, as the smaller vehicle is no match for the heavy mass of the truck. When the truck driver is tired or sleepy, his reaction time can become impaired adding to the magnitude of the situation. The injuries can be so severe as to cause permanent disability, loss of limb or even, tragically, loss of life itself. This is the time to get help from an experienced Houston truck accident attorney from The Doan Law Firm.
