Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Fatigue

The nature of being a long-haul truck driver is spending long hours on the road. Understanding that driving for many hours at a time can be exhausting, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) came up with a set of Hours of Service regulations which state how many hours drivers may drive per shift and how often and for how long they need to take breaks. Still, despite these regulations, there are some drivers who choose to ignore these rules for their own gain. The unfortunate result is that innocent people are injured or killed when the tired truck driver causes an accident.

Kobs & Philley, PLLC zealously advocates for victims of truck accidents and their families. If you’ve been injured in an accident, talk to our Mississippi truck accident attorneys as soon as possible. As soon as you retain our firm, we can investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine whether a tired driver was to blame for the collision. We can then take action to hold the appropriate parties accountable for their negligence. Liable parties in fatigued driving cases may include the driver for failing to take his or her required rest breaks or his or her employer for encouraging or requiring the driver to ignore regulations.
