We Fight Hard Because Your Settlement Matters
Were you involved in an accident that was caused by a tired truck driver? Triumph Law, P.C. can help you hold the truck company and the driver responsible for the injuries you have incurred.
As with any driver, being tired is a huge distraction that can have devastating results. When that driver is behind the wheel of a multi-ton semi, 18-wheeler, or other large truck, crashes and collisions can result in catastrophic injuries or death. Though there are federal regulations in place to help curb the prevalence of accidents caused by overworked or fatigued drivers, crashes are still common across the U.S.
To experience the Triumph Law, P.C. difference, call (916) 500-0000 today to discuss your injuries.
Hours of Service Rules Commercial Truck Drivers
Truck driver fatigue is a leading cause of truck crashes, accounting for almost one-fifth of all truck accidents. To promote the safety of all motorists, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has placed restrictions on the number of hours truckers can drive without resting.
According to the FMCSA regulations:
- Truckers must not drive more than 11 hours after 10 hours of rest
- Truckers must take a 30-minute break after eight hours of continuous driving
- Truckers must take 34 hours off after driving 60/70 hours in 7 to 8 days
