You are a driver. You understand how hard it is to drive when you are tired. Professional truck drivers understand this too, but everyday truckers push their physical limits, relying on caffeine and other stimulants in order to make faster times. Unfortunately, tired drivers are much more likely to get into accidents and the results can be devastating.
At the Odom Law Firm, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of people injured in tractor-trailer accidents. As Arkansas attorneys serving people injured in driver fatigue accidents, we understand the wide range of dangers out on the road, and we are ready to help you hold negligent and dangerous drivers responsible.
When truck drivers fall asleep at the wheel, other drivers suffer the consequences. Contact us at 479-935-8425 or toll free at 866-935-2070.
There are strict federal laws regulating the number of hours truckers can spend on the road in a given time frame. There are also laws regarding the number of hours they can spend on the road consecutively. Even as truck drivers traverse state lines, they must continue to obey the same federal regulations.
These laws are in place, because a tired driver is a dangerous driver, much more likely to fail to react to dangerous road conditions or lose control of the vehicle completely. When you are driving a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler, driving fatigued is simply not an option.
We will take decisive action to acquire the driving logs from the trucking company as soon as possible. However, the numbers in these books are not always correct. So, we will conduct a further investigation to get the real story. If the trucker responsible for your accident was too fatigued to drive, we will make sure he or she is held responsible.
