Understanding the dangers of trucker fatigue

Large truck wrecks keep happening on roads across the U.S. for a host of reasons. Drunk driving and speeding are common causes, but some truck wrecks take place because a trucker is suffering from fatigue. Some people may not think that driver fatigue is very serious, at least in comparison to drug and alcohol use behind the wheel. Or, some may think that everyone drives while they are fatigued at some point. However, truck driver fatigue is extremely dangerous and responsible for many of the large truck collisions that have taken place.

When a truck driver becomes tired behind the wheel, they may have trouble coming to a stop, staying within the speed limit or avoiding an accident. Sadly, large trucks are especially dangerous when involved in collisions due to their massive size and other factors, such as the amount of time it can take a trucker to slow down. From the loss of a driver or passenger's life to injuries that completely derail their future, the consequences of a truck crash can be very serious. If your life has been shattered by a driver who was suffering from fatigue, or any other issue, for that matter, you should carefully think through your options.

Legal action may be the way to go but it is crucial for you to recover from a physical, mental and financial standpoint in the wake of a truck crash. If you are interested in reading more on topics related to truck driver fatigue, visit our truck crashes page.
