Yes. Tired truckers pose dangers to other drivers on the road. While large trucks are an important part of our economy, when people who have been on the road one too many hours drive them, the outcome can be deadly.
Every year, thousands of people are killed in California big rig accidents. When a trucker decides to push on, despite extreme fatigue, the following can occur:
- Trucker’s reaction time is slowed
- Trucker’s judgment is impaired
- Trucker’s attention can lapse
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drowsy trucker, you may be able to hold not only the trucker liable, but the trucking company as well.
