Every day in Nashville’s three major interstates, I-24, I-65 and I-40, truck drivers come through who are fatigued from too many hours of operations, too much time behind the wheel. Federal law requires truck drivers to take breaks at certain intervals, and to only drive for a certain amount of time.
However, being on the road for weeks and days at a time causes truck drivers to become fatigued. Trucking companies push these drivers to work harder, move faster, for profits over the safety of people. If you’ve been hit by a truck driver, chances are it involved driver fatigue. You need lawyers experienced in searching out the truth, and finding all the wrongdoing of the trucking company.
Oftentimes, the trucking company itself could be held to punitive damages for forcing drivers to drive when they’re tired. We do this for people across the state every day.
