Driver Fatigue Accident Lawyer St Louis
Driver Fatigue Accident Attorney in St Louis. When trucking companies overextend their employees by having them work long hours to travel far distances, their actions can cause truck drivers to suffer from sleeping issues including fatigue. Truck driver fatigue is highly dangerous and can result in extremely severe and even deathly accidents. Truck drivers and companies must follow the rules set in place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in order to prevent unsafe driving conditions for truck drivers and those around them. If a truck driver is found negligent by driving under fatigue, they will, along with their company, be held accountable for the injuries and damages they’ve caused. If you or a loved one has been injured due to driver fatigue in St Louis or the surrounding areas, get in touch with Burger Law today.
Truck drivers must never drive more than 11 hours or drive after 14 hours since the beginning of a shift without taking a 10-hour break. Truck drivers are not allowed to drive after 60 hours of work during a 7-day period or 70 hours of work during an 8-day period. However, they may resume driving after 34 hours off the clock.
