El Paso Commercial Trucker Driver Fatigue
Commercial truck drivers are under enormous pressure to make deliveries on time. As a result, many truckers drive to the point of exhaustion in order to make a higher salary. Some truckers take stimulants to stay awake. They may feel that these stimulants allow them to remain alert, but in reality they are a significant danger to anyone on the road.
Truckers, like all motorists, have an obligation to operate their trucks in a safe manner. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for truck drivers to try to combat fatigue by using drugs such as cocaine and amphetamine. If you were in an accident caused by a truck driver operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, contact our firm today.
If the truck driver fails to comply with federal regulations, or the trucking company forces the driver to bend the rules, they can be held liable in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
