Truck Driver Fatigue
Talk to Our Greenville Truck Accident Lawyers About Your Case Today!
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
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.
