Truck Driver Fatigue Lawyer in NYC

Truck driver fatigue is preventable. Despite the rigors of driving long distances as a full-time occupation, drivers who get proper rest should be able to stay alert. Unfortunately, many truckers feel compelled to push the limits of allowable hours of driving time per day.

A trucking company may be indirectly responsible by making impractical demands for drivers to deliver more loads faster. The company may also be liable by not enforcing driving hour log rules. At the same time, a truck driver bears responsibility if he or she drives longer than allowed or fails to practice healthy ways of preventing fatigue.

The sad case of the Walmart truck driver who was awake for 24 hours straight before rear-ending a limo bus occupied by comedian Tracy Morgan is a reminder of the hazards of driving while fatigued. This accident resulted in serious injuries for Mr. Morgan and death for one of his companions.

Kenny represents you, you can be sure we will investigate thoroughly. If we uncover evidence that the truck driver in your case was likely fatigued, we will use this information to strengthen your injury claim or wrongful death claim.
