Arkansas Trucking Accidents and Driver Fatigue Lawyers
Long working hours and incentives for more pay may motivate commercial truck drivers to skip sleep and rest to complete their runs quickly. Additionally, dispatchers with deadlines and shipments that need to be made, may choose to push a driver beyond federal regulations, forcing drivers to operate on little sleep and rest. Indeed, on many occasions, the truck driver who caused the wreck may be less to blame for injuries or the loss of life than the trucking company that was trying to cut corners.
Fatigued or drowsy driving is a major problem throughout Northwest Arkansas. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drowsy or fatigued driving may cause up to 6,000 deaths each year. While all driver fatigue accidents have the potential to cause serious injury or death, fatigued driving of a semi-truck can be especially catastrophic. The size and weight of an 18-wheeler truck, compared to the standard family vehicle, is massive. This size difference means that drive fatigue collisions involving 18-wheeler trucks are much more likely to result in serious injuries or loss of life.
