Answer:

Despite federal regulations limiting how long a truck driver can consecutively stay behind the wheel, truck driver fatigue remains a significant cause of truck accidents in Dallas, Texas.

According to the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board, and although federal trucking regulations regarding hours of service have been improved, an estimated 20 to 40 percent of all truck accidents somehow involve fatigued truck drivers. Fatigued driving can cause trucks to veer out of their lane, run off of the road, slam into the back of the car in front of them, and generally slow their reaction times.

In order to prove that the truck driver was drowsy, fatigued, or asleep at the time of your accident, you will likely need the help of a personal injury attorney in order to obtain ECM data recordings, the truck driver’s hours-of-service log, and testimony from the at-fault truck driver.
