Fatigued Truckers

Our attorneys fight for injury victims

Truck drivers often work long hours driving across the country. As a result, many truck drivers often fall asleep at the wheel and cause serious truck accidents involving other vehicles, especially on congested highways in California.

Falling asleep at the wheel might seem like an understandable lapse. But strict federal and state regulations exist in California that limit the number of hours commercial truck drivers can work (including federal Hours of Service (HOS) regulations) precisely because officials want to prevent tired truck driver accidents.

Free Case Consultation

Our California truck accident attorneys thoroughly understand these laws, including all the applicable Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. That's why we have such a strong track record of success at Clancy & Diaz, LLP of Walnut Creek, California. We know what evidence to look for and how to build the strongest possible legal case.

Common tired truck driver accidents

Truck accidents caused by tired truck drivers cover a wide range. Some of the most common - and most serious - truck accidents involving fatigued drivers include:

  • Speeding truck accidents (since the tired truck driver doesn't slow down)
  • Head-on collisions (the truck driver veers into oncoming traffic)
  • Rear-end truck accidents (a sleeping truck driver crashes into the car in front)
  • Multi-car crashes (the truck driver crashes into several vehicles)

There are many other types of truck accidents involving truck drivers asleep at the wheel. No matter what type of accident you're dealing with in California's East Bay, our attorneys can help you obtain the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.

How we can help you

The biggest obstacle injury victims often face involves the truck driver denying that he or she fell asleep. They might even claim that you did something to cause your collision. That's why you need us on your side, fighting for your rights.

Our attorneys know how to find the evidence you need to build a strong legal case. From reviewing accident reports to interviewing witnesses, we leave no stone unturned in pursuit of justice. We then present this information to the truck driver's insurance company and negotiate with them for the best possible settlement. And if they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court.
