Driver Fatigue

Truck Accident Attorneys in Sacramento

Fatigue is recognized as a major risk factor for all drivers and a known contributing factor to road crashes. It affects everyone, no matter how experienced the driver is. Studies have shown that fatigue contributes to about 30% of fatal crashes and 15% of serious injury crashes. The danger of driver fatigue is high.

Before a driver even begins to feel tired, he or she suffers from degraded judgment and decision-making capabilities, cognitive fixation, decreased coordination, reduced reaction time, perseveration, and many other effects. It is the responsibility of every motor carrier to provide its drivers with the tools necessary to perform the job demanded of them and to prohibit them from driving while fatigued. And if they fail to do so, they put everyone on the road at risk.

Identifying Driver Fatigue

Driver fatigue is difficult to identify or recognize but a good attorney will have the experience to get you the compensation you deserve. Fatigued drivers have slowed reaction times and a reduced ability to assess situations quickly. Research has shown most people are often unable to assess their own fatigue levels and are unable to make the best decisions until it’s too late. Although the Department of Transportation is working hard to improve highway safety, which includes regulating the number of hours truck drivers may operate, truck accidents still occur. Contact a personal injury attorney for help if you’ve been in a truck accident.
