Truck Wrecks From Fatigued Truck Drivers
Professional drivers such as truck drivers have an obligation to focus on the primary duty of their job — driving in a safe manner. Since many truck drivers are paid by the number of miles they drive or by the weight of the load he or she is carrying, drivers may be more inclined to create fraudulent log books or drive while fatigued. Driving without one’s full attention on the road can then cause serious or fatal accidents. At Sommerman & Quesada, LLP, we stand up for the victims of negligent truck accidents. Our law firm is located in Dallas, and we represent clients throughout Texas and New Mexico in injury claims. We have a distinguished reputation, and are known for our commitment and knowledge of the law. Over the past 40 years, our firm has provided competent and caring legal representation for individuals who have been injured in negligent accidents.
Truck Driver Accidents Caused by Fatigue
Truck drivers are often fatigued because the nature of their job requires long and tireless hours behind the wheel. While they may be required to drive long distances — it is their sole job to concentrate on driving. Drivers can easily get fatigued if they do not stop and take breaks to rest, or drive longer hours than required in order to log more miles. When a driver is fatigued or falls asleep at the wheel, they are unable to process reactions as quickly as an alert driver.
Our firm has tried hundreds of trucking wreck claims involving fatigued drivers, and our attorneys are highly knowledgeable of the law. We understand how to evaluate each individual claim in detail, and we understand how to develop a strategy for the courtroom. Our attorneys will listen to your situation, help educate you about your claim and inform you of all your legal options so you can make an informed decision.

We feel that by staying involved in the community we can best connect with the individuals our firm is serving.
