Victoria Commercial Trucker Driver Fatigue
Have you or a loved one sustained injuries because of a negligent commercial truck driver? One common cause of truck accidents is driver fatigue. Since truckers are expected to log significant miles and are often paid by the mile, they often push themselves to the point of exhaustion, which can cause disastrous results. Given the size and weight of commercial trucks, accidents involving a tractor-trailer often cause serious or fatal injuries.
