Fatigued Truck Driver Accidents
Fighting for victims in West Virginia
A common cause of accidents involving commercial trucks is truck driver fatigue. Fatigued drivers are not alert and can easily cause an accident that leaves people with serious injuries. This is also a form of negligence, as there are strict regulations in place designed to prevent fatigue. The Charleston truck accident attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC hold negligent truck driver and trucking companies accountable.
Commercial truck drivers operate on a strict schedule. They must get their cargo from point A to point B in a certain amount of time, which means that anything that can potentially slow them down is avoided. Unfortunately, even necessary breaks in the driving schedule can be ignored. Take resting breaks, for example.
