The result of accidents involving commercial motor vehicles (CMV)s can be devastating. Any passenger cars in the collision are likely to be crushed with their occupants along with them. CMVs can weigh anywhere between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds, so they cause an enormous about of destruction when their drivers lose control of the vehicles. Survivors of such a crash can experience catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injury. Likewise, one of the most common causes of these accidents is driver fatigue. Falling asleep at the wheel or being fatigued was cited as the number 1 truck driver impairment in 2013.

Hours of Service

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) created the hours of service to help truck drivers avoid fatigue-related accidents. Although many CMV drivers claim they know when they are getting drowsy, studies have shown people aren’t good at estimating their own exhaustion levels. Some people exhibit symptoms of fatigue, such as yawning and rapid blinking, before they fall asleep, while others might nod off without displaying these warning signs. If a truck driver violates the hours of service, he or she is going against federal regulations. Likely, you can successfully pursue a personal injury lawsuit if the crash was caused by the driver’s fatigue.
