One of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents in the United States is truck driver fatigue. When these accidents involve semi-trucks and tractor-trailers, the risks of catastrophic injuries or fatalities increase substantially.

Commercial truck drivers have an obligation to follow federal regulations regarding the number of consecutive hours they are permitted to operate a truck, as well as the amount of rest needed to gain before driving once again. It is mandatory for truck drivers to keep a detailed log and receipts to verify if they have met the requirements or not.
Our Woodbridge truck accident drivers can conduct a thorough investigation into the accident and gather evidence to determine if the trucker driver had a duty to exercise reasonable care, failed to exercise this duty, and caused your injuries and damages. In addition to the driver, we may be able to hold their employer liable as well if he or she failed to monitor the driver's hours adequately.
