Driver Fatigue

Causes of Trucking Accidents in North Carolina

Commercial trucking is not an easy profession. Truck drivers must undergo extensive training and certification in order to legally operate a tractor-trailer. They are also pushed to cover extremely long distances in a short amount of time. Federal trucking regulations allow truck drivers to remain behind the wheel for as many as 14 hours before taking a full rest break, which only encourages drivers to drive while fatigued in order to make their destination on time. Research and statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proves that drowsy driving is a leading cause of accidents for heavy-vehicle drivers. Anyone who has been injured by such a negligent driver or trucking company should not hesitate to retain a North Carolina trucking accident lawyer to help them win compensation.
