Driver fatigue is one of the biggest factors in trucking accidents. Federal regulations exist to ensure truck drivers get adequate rest, but the fact is that many drivers violate the regulations because of the demands of the job. Tired drivers are not as alert at the wheel, some may actually fall asleep while driving, and others use stimulants to stay awake, which can further impair the ability to drive and lead to accidents that cause severe injuries and even fatalities.
Scott and the attorneys at Scott W. Schiff & Associates in Columbus, Ohio, know how to prove driver fatigue as the cause of a tractor-trailer accident or truck accident. We know how to quickly secure all versions of driver logbooks and truck satellite systems that can help prove violations of safety regulations. As our case results clearly demonstrate, we have a history of successfully winning truck driver liability claims and claims against trucking companies and securing full financial compensation for our clients.
