Tired Truck Drivers
Accidents Caused by Truck Driver Fatigue in Port St. Lucie
Driver drowsiness and fatigue is a major cause of accidents involving commercial vehicles because truck drivers are required to meet certain deadlines that sometimes require them to drive long hours.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that:
- Up to 40% of all heavy truck crashes are related to tired truck drivers
- 18% of those crashes were caused because a driver fell asleep behind the wheel
When a truck driver fails to take care of their body, other drivers pay the price. If you have been involved in a trucking accident that was not your fault, we will investigate your accident to determine if truck driver fatigue was to blame.
