Phoenix Truck Driver Fatigue Lawyers
Operator fatigue is one of the most common causes of trucking accidents. The impact of fatigue is almost as great of an impairment as that of alcohol or drug intoxication.
A predominant percentage of truck crashes occur on long hauls. As the drivers continue driving long hours and often through the night, they become increasingly fatigued, and reaction time lengthens. The driver may not even feel the effects of the sleep deprivation, but this can create extremely high-risky situations that may result in catastrophe all too often.
The Lamber-Goodnow Injury Law Team is dedicated to fighting for victims and their families, seeking the maximum injury and damage compensation necessary to fulfill cost burdens that may last for a lifetime. Our Phoenix-based truck driver fatigue attorneys have decades of experience handling serious truck accident cases throughout Arizona and the Southwest.
If you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed when a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel or nodded off, we can help you today.
Drivers are required to log both their hours driven on the road and their sleep in driver’s logs that are to be monitored by the trucking company. In some cases, drivers attempt to optimize a trip by doctoring the logbook, or the trucking company may encourage the driver to drive longer than is legally permitted by state and federal regulations.
Our team is well aware of these tactics and how truckers attempt to hide them. Our comprehensive investigations uncover evidence of logbook violations and driving times that did not allow for enough sleep in between shifts behind the wheel.
Trucking companies and operators are skilled in covering up the role they may have played in truck wrecks, but our lawyers have the legal experience and investigative resources to catch these tactics and hold the responsible parties accountable for the injuries and damages our clients have suffered.
