Texas Truck Driver Fatigue Accident Lawyers
Speak to an Experienced San Antonio Attorney About Driver Fatigue and Truck Accidents
Truckers Driving While Sleepy
Falling asleep behind the wheel of a
tractor-trailer or other large vehicle is a major problem. As bad as it can be for the driver of a car, it’s worse when it’s a fully loaded 80,000 pound truck. It’s worse yet when driving that truck is your job – and you’ve put others at risk because you were too tired to be on the road.
Since 1990, the attorneys of
The Law Office of Tyler & Peery have helped injured people recover compensation after truck accidents. We’ve seen many cases where
truck accidents resulted from drowsy driving on the part of truckers.
Drowsy Driving Just as Bad as Drunk Driving
From our perspective, driving while sleepy is just as bad as driving while intoxicated. A trucker’s ability to make good decisions and stay alert when tired is no better than when that driver is drunk.
The results are the same: swerving in and out of lanes, speeding (or going too slow), and slowed reaction times.
In fact, truck drivers are every bit as responsible for an accident from falling asleep at the wheel because they violated
hours-of-service rules as if they were under the influence of alcohol.
