There are few things in life more terrifying than being involved in a serious automobile accident involving a large truck, semi-truck, or 18-wheeler. More often than not, accidents involving trucks result in serious injuries or death. The consequences associated with these types of accidents are generally extreme and can include:
- Permanent injuries
- Chronic pain
- Excessive medical bills
- Job loss and much more
The Consequences of Unsafe Truck DrivingUnfortunately, truck driver fatigue is a common problem in the United States and is responsible for a high number of tractor trailer accidents every year resulting in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration imposing laws mandating that truck drivers get ample rest in between long haul driving shifts. Despite the laws surrounding truck driving, truck drivers still sometimes fall asleep behind the wheel. If you or someone you love has been affected by an accident caused by truck driver fatigue, consult a truck accident attorney to evaluate your options for proper compensation today.
