Truck Driver Fatigue
When drivers are tired, they are more likely to lose focus on the road, have delayed reactions and even fall asleep behind the wheel. For truck drivers, who are under pressure from employers to deliver loads quickly, fatigue from long stretches of driving is common – and can make truck accidents more likely to occur.
At the law office of O’Brien Batten & Kirtley, PLLC, a Lexington, Kentucky, personal injury law firm, we advocate on behalf of individuals injured in truck accidents caused by driver fatigue, helping them hold drivers and their companies responsible for negligent behavior.
