We Hold Trucking Companies Accountable For Accidents Caused By Truck Driver Fatigue

Truckers are often under a great deal of pressure from the companies they work for. They are often forced to cut corners — driving faster, taking fewer breaks and working more — to meet strict delivery deadlines. The result is driver fatigue, a serious problem on Connecticut roads.

Fatigued drivers are a true danger to other motor vehicles on the road. As a fully loaded truck can weigh 80,000 pounds, smaller vehicles such as cars, motorcycles and bicycles are no match in an accident.

Taking Action Against Fatigued Truck Drivers

At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we represent the drivers of these smaller vehicles in personal injury lawsuits against truckers who drove while fatigued. As experienced lawyers, we have seen firsthand how drivers are severely limited by lack of sleep. Their response times are longer and they may even doze off behind the wheel.

When the cases we handle involve driver fatigue, we look for how many hours the driver spent on the road before the crash, as well as what distances were covered. Doing the math is especially important since federal motor carrier regulations limit the amount of time that trucks can be on the road and dictate the length of mandatory rest breaks. Violation of these driver fatigue laws is a serious offense.

Choosing The Right Attorney For Your Truck Accident Case

There are many attorneys who claim to handle truck accident cases, but not all of them are equally well-equipped to maximize your results. When hiring an attorney, look for a professional with experience — someone who has handled similar cases before. This attorney can tell you what to expect and which strategies are usually successful when litigating a truck accident lawsuit.

The attorneys at Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., have been handling complex personal injury litigation since 1988. As experienced lawyers, we can answer your questions about driver fatigue.
