Midland Commercial Trucker Driver Fatigue
A lack of sleep can cause a driver to be impaired and loose focus on their driving. Drivers might resort to energy drinks to help them fight off the fatigue, but ultimately the extreme tiredness wins. Drivers might swerve unexpectedly and can even drive into oncoming traffic causing devastating accidents.
Most commercial truck drivers are behind the wheel for 12-14 hours a day, this can cause physical and mental fatigue. Due to strict timeliness drivers push themselves to make sure deliveries are met for a delivery bonus. If drivers are falsifying driver logs and pushing themselves to the edge of fatigue to meet delivery schedules, they are negligent in their actions.
Commercial drivers falling asleep at the wheel or nodding off can be catastrophic and can lead to the death of an innocent driver. If you or a loved one was injured because a driver was negligent contact our firm.
