Tired Driver Attorney in Fresno
The Dangers of Tired Driving
In the state of California, truck drivers must undergo extensive qualification procedures before they are granted a commercial driver's license. While operating a large and dangerous vehicle such as an 18-wheeler or "big rig," truck drivers are expected to be alert and cautious while on the road. However, their companies often require them to drive very long distances in a certain amount of time, tempting them to continue driving long after they've become fatigued. As a result, they may not be as alert as they should be and an accident may result.
Truck Accident Injuries
When an 18-wheeler is involved in an accident, the property damage and injuries can be catastrophic. They can weigh up to 40 tons and have been known to demolish small vehicles in multiple-car pileups, tip-over accidents and jackknife accidents. Some big rigs may even catch on fire depending on their cargo. All of these events could cause serious injuries such as
spinal cord injuries,
broken bones and
severe burns. Whatever the case may be, an innocent victim has every right to demand compensation from the trucking company responsible for the truck driver's recklessness.
