Tired Truck Driver Accidents

Dallas Truck Accident Lawyers

Did you know there are rules and regulations that truck drivers must abide by that are federally mandated? These laws are governed by the United States Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Outlined in these laws are guidelines for everything from operating time and maintenance records to travel distance allowed and even how much rest a driver must get in order to properly and safely operate a big rig. If you were hit by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel or who failed to react because of drowsiness, it is highly imperative that you contact a Dallas injury attorney from Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP right away.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration suggests numerous ways to fight fatigue including receiving adequate reset and sleep time. Long-haul truck drivers are also required to have a sleeper bed available in their trucks to help ensure that truckers are able to receive the quantity of quality of sleep they deserve at any given time without checking into a motel or hotel. In some cases, however, blatant disregard for these laws can cause serious complications to individuals and tired truck drivers have been known to create major collisions. If investigation of the driver's logs has confirmed that the driver was not taking adequate rest and was operating the vehicle under dangerous circumstances, you need to contact Jackson Allen & Williams, LLP right away.
