Trucking Accidents caused by Fatigue in Louisiana
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, 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 Partners can help you determine whether a drowsy or fatigued trucker was responsible for the truck accident that has upended your life.
