Driver Fatigue and Trucking Accidents

Trucking regulations limit the number of consecutive hours truck drivers can work and the number of total hours they can work in a day and in a week. Oftentimes, however, the pressure to deliver more in less time overrides safety concerns. The result of this type of negligence is often a truck accident, because drivers operate trucks while tired or push their bodies past their natural limits by abusing stimulants.

In handling a truck accident case, it is important to obtain the facts to determine if driver fatigue played a role. The Finz firm lawyers thoroughly investigate each truck accident case to uncover violations of trucking regulations. They will investigate every aspect of your truck accident case, including driver logs, cell phone records, hotel receipts, GPS dates and other evidence.
