Proving Truck Driver Fatigue Can Be Critical For An Injury Claim
In the transportation and logistics industry, time is money and truck drivers are expected to meet strict deadlines. To fulfill those deadlines and remain employed, truckers may drive long hours without adequate rest. This leads to exhausted commercial drivers and devastating accidents.
At Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., we know that the aftermath of a truck-car collision can be a frightening and stressful time. Our lawyers have helped many clients deal with insurance companies and pursue compensation for their injuries.
Who Is Responsible For Accidents Caused By Fatigued Truckers?
Naturally, exhausted truck drivers who get behind the wheel are responsible for the accidents they cause. However, determining liability in the eyes of the law is not always so straightforward. Numerous factors can affect the outcome of a case. In some cases, the trucking company may be liable if it required the driver to drive while drowsy or if it failed to follow state and federal safety regulations involving rest breaks.
If you choose Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., to represent you, we will immediately launch an investigation into your accident to determine what happened, who was responsible and how we can most effectively secure the compensation you deserve.
