Truck Accident Lawyer in Baton Rouge
Tired Driver Accidents
Louisiana's city streets, country roads and highways are highly traveled by drivers operating all types of vehicles. From professional truck drivers, to families on vacation, to the daily work commuters, drivers find themselves in a range of physical and mental conditions, many of which are related to fatigue. People know that operating a vehicle is a serious responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Even so, many drivers take to the roads with insufficient sleep needed to drive responsibly, and accidents occur as a result. When a truck driver has not had sufficient rest, he or she poses a serious danger to all other drivers on the road.
Tired drivers take on a variety of characteristics such as slowed response time, inability to focus properly, decreased awareness and physical fatigue, which can cause the driver to swerve, speed or drive too slowly. This type of negligence can also happen if the driver fails to check mirrors and does not follow proper federal safety regulations while operating their vehicles. Accidents caused by tired truck drivers often lead to devastating and permanent injuries or fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident caused by a tired driver, it is crucial that you contact a Baton Rouge personal injury attorney at The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to begin the process of filing your injury claim.
