Murrieta Driver Fatigue Accident Lawyers

Murrieta Truck Driver Fatigue Accident Attorneys

Lawyers in Southern California for Truck Accidents

When 18-wheelers, semis, and other large trucks are involved in accidents, it is often the other drivers and passengers who sustain the greatest harm. This is primarily due to these types of trucks being so much heavier and larger than the average passenger vehicle. With this in mind, truck drivers must be extremely careful when sharing roads and highways with other drivers. Truck accidents are often related to driver fatigue. A dangerous accident will likely occur when truck drivers get behind the wheel after they have had insufficient rest.

Maineri Law Firm helps victims injured in accidents involving tired or drowsy truck drivers. We work with clients to prove negligence and hold at-fault drivers and transportation companies accountable for injuries.

Accidents Caused by Fatigued Truck Drivers

While the dangers of driving under the influence are well documented, the risks of driving while tired or drowsy are not discussed as often. Tired drivers pose a significant threat to other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. When a driver falls asleep at the wheel, a disastrous accident is likely to happen. Even when a tired driver is able to remain awake, their decision-making skills are considerably slowed, and they are not able to react to traffic or road conditions as quickly. 

Fatigue can affect any motor vehicle driver, but when an operator of a large truck lacks proper rest, the consequences can be even more devastating. Spending numerous hours of the day each week driving a large vehicle can be an exhausting career. That is one of the reasons why agencies such as the Department of Transportation put rules in place to limit how much time truck drivers can operate a vehicle each day. Other regulations, including mandatory rest periods, have been implemented to increase safety and limit the dangers of fatigued drivers on the roads.

Truck drivers and their employers who ignore these regulations may be found to be responsible for serious accidents. Maineri Law Firm is well-versed in legal matters related to truck driver fatigue, and we offer our representation to victims injured in truck accidents.

When a truck driver is fatigued due to lack of sleep or long working hours, they become increasingly more likely to cause an accident that can have devastating effects.
