Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

Phoenix Truck Driver Fatigue Caused Accident Attorneys

It is important to realize that there are federal regulations in place that limit the amount of time truck drivers are to spend behind the wheel. These laws, called “hours of service” hours forbid drivers from exceeding:

  • 11 or more hours in a consecutive 14-hour period following 10 consecutive off-duty hours
  • More than 14 hours of driving in a 24-hour period
  • Logging more than 60 hours in a seven-day consecutive period
  • Logging more than 70 hours in an eight-day consecutive period

There is an obvious reason these regulations are put in place; driving while exhausted is extremely dangerous — even more so when the vehicle is large and is fully stocked. Unfortunately, drivers are paid by mileage, so there is a built-in incentive to drive through periods of exhaustion.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, it is important to determine whether or not fatigue played a role in the crash. With more than 30 years of personal injury experience, we are prepared to immediately investigate whether driver fatigue was involved.
