Truck Driver Fatigue Accident Lawyer

When a truck driver causes an accident because they stayed on the road too long without taking a rest break, it is others who pay the price. Truck drivers usually walk away from accidents, while people in passenger vehicles are hauled away in ambulances.

At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our attorneys represent the victims of truck drivers who fall asleep or lose alertness behind the wheel. We have a track record of successful verdicts and settlements backed by more than 15 years of legal experience.

Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Fatigue in West Virginia

Truck driver fatigue is a leading cause of truck accidents. Our attorneys have extensive experience with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations that apply to truck drivers. Those regulations include hours of service laws that are designed to keep tired drivers off the road.

Drivers of trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds must take a 30-minute rest break during the first eight hours of a shift. In addition, drivers may not drive more than:

  • 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off duty
  • 60 hours in seven consecutive days
  • 70 hours in eight consecutive days

Truck drivers are required to log the number of hours they drive each day to ensure that they comply with hours of service regulations. Our attorneys will take immediate steps to secure the logbook and ensure that it is accurate. By comparing the logbook with other evidence, such as fuel and toll receipts, we can determine if the driver actually took the rest breaks recorded in the logbook.
