Driver Fatigue: A Significant Cause of Accidents
Driver fatigue is an important cause of truck accidents. At our New Jersey law firm, Brady, Brady & Reilly (BBR), we help people seriously injured in truck accidents that occurred because of an overly tired driver. Our experienced trial lawyers have been handling truck accidents for many years and understand the process and the issues that can arise.
Your Decisions, Our Experience
Call 877-915-5746 or 201-702-1821
When you consult us after a truck accident, we are committed to providing you with the information you need to make decisions about your case. We describe the legal process, discuss any time limits on filing claims, and advise you about possible outcomes. When you know your options and your rights, you are in a good position to make decisions about filing a claim for damages and compensation.
Investigating the Accident
Federal trucking regulations limit the number of hours a driver can be on the road. The purpose of these regulations is to prevent drivers from causing accidents. Unfortunately, truckers use a variety of ways to circumvent the regulations, resulting in driver fatigue that can lead to serious or even fatal accidents.
We take all steps necessary to build strong cases for our clients, including these:
- Determining whether the trucker falsified the driver's log
- Obtaining medical records and accident reports
- Consulting with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts
Preparation is Key to Our Success
We prepare every truck accident case for trial. We find this approach sends a signal to the other side that we mean business; it often results in a higher settlement offer. And if we proceed to trial, we are ready to use our many years of litigation experience to seek the damages and compensation our client needs and deserves.
