Here for You When Truck Driver Fatigue Causes Injuries and Wrongful Death
Federal trucking regulations specify how many hours a truck driver can be on the road in order to reduce driver fatigue. Too often, however, these regulations are ignored in favor of a higher profit. When truck drivers get tired, they can fall asleep at the wheel, have diminished control over their big rig, and make other serious and potentially fatal mistakes.

Bronx Truck Driver Logs Lawyers
When a truck driver falls asleep at the wheel, or makes an error in judgment because of lack of sleep, who is at fault? Truck companies cannot control how much sleep their drivers get each night. However, they should enforce accurate driving logs, and not demand that their drivers be on the road longer than regulations allow.
Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate your truck accident to determine if truck driver negligence or truck company negligence is to blame. We may be able to seek compensation from both sources, maximizing the recovery you receive.
