Truck Driver Fatigue

Trucker fatigue is a leading factor in the nearly 4,000 deaths that occur in large commercial truck crashes each year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident in Baton Rouge, it could well be that the trucker behind the wheel of the tractor trailer, semi, 18-wheeler, etc., was too drowsy, sleepy or worn out to operate their vehicle safely.

It is also quite likely that a fatigued truck driver was knowingly behind the wheel in violation of federal Hours of Service (HOS) regulations, either under orders from the trucking company or on their own volition.

Babcock Injury Lawyers can help you determine whether a drowsy or fatigued trucker was responsible for the truck accident that has upended your life. We can also seek to compel the trucker and/or the corporate “motor carrier” employer to pay you for your medical expenses, pain, suffering, and additional losses.

Our aggressive personal injury lawyers can help you pursue a Louisiana truck accident claim at no financial risk to you. If we do not conclude the case with a monetary settlement or court award for you, you will not be charged a legal fee. Also, our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee is that we’ll give you your entire case file within 30 days of being hired if you are unhappy with the progress of your case with no attorney’s fees or costs owed to us.
