Truck Accident Caused by Fatigued Driver
It is unfortunate but true that of all the causes of truck accidents, fatigued drivers are one of the most common. It has been such a noticeable safety hazard that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration set very specific regulations on the number of hours that a commercial truck driver can be at the wheel. Violation of these regulations happens more often than it should, and the results can be most destructive. If you or a loved one has sustained truck accident injuries, we understand the difficulty that this can cause for you and your family. A Longview trucking injury attorney can help you discover if you have been the victim of negligence. There are time limits following a truck accident as to when you can file a suit, so act now to get help.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
If you have been the victim of a truck accident, especially one caused by a fatigued driver, you are best served by retaining the services of Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry Law Firm, a competent and experienced personal injury law firm. If the cause of your accident was related to driver fatigue, it is possible that you will be offered a settlement. These settlement offers are often far less than what you are actually entitled to. The last thing the responsible trucking or insurance company will want is for you to get skilled legal representation. We do not recommend that you accept any settlement without first consulting competent legal counsel. A driver or the company he works for should be held responsible to follow the laws and regulations governing their industry.
