The causes of trucking accidents are numerous: defective equipment, poor maintenance, bad weather. However, one of the most common reasons for 18-wheeler accidents is truck driver fatigue.

As truck accident attorneys, we recognize the pressures placed upon commercial truck drivers. There is an emphasis on prompt delivery regardless of what it takes, and many drivers are willing to sacrifice sleep and safety to satisfy company officials. However, though we recognize the pressures, we do not accept excuses.

  • There is no reason to endanger innocent people just to squeeze in one more delivery ahead of schedule.
  • Drivers should maintain one accurate logbook. There is no reason to keep an official record for the authorities and an actual record for the driver.
  • Trucking companies should encourage and enforce safe driving practices for the well-being of the driver and for those sharing the road with semi-trucks.
