Fatigued Truck Driver Accident Lawyer in Atlanta
Fighting relentlessly for Georgia injury victims
It’s a sight that drivers in Atlanta and throughout Georgia may be familiar with: a tractor-trailer on I-75 or I-20 is swerving in and out of traffic lanes, possibly increasing and decreasing speed erratically as other drivers try to keep their distance. While most drivers may not think twice about sharing the road with these massive 18-wheelers, some of the most catastrophic truck accidents seen at Gary Martin Hays & Associates are caused by fatigued truck drivers who fall asleep at the wheel on Georgia highways.
Tired truck drivers might not be viewed by the general public the same as drunk drivers, but the outcome of either accident can be the same. That’s because fatigued driving is impaired driving. Just like drunk drivers, sleepy drivers make a choice to get behind the wheel when they know they’re too tired to drive. And just like drunk drivers, fatigued drivers may suffer from impaired judgment, slower reaction times or even fall asleep at the wheel. However, truck driver fatigue can be difficult to prove without an experienced fatigued truck driver accident lawyer in Georgia. Call 1-800-898-HAYS today. Rely on our experienced attorneys to build the strongest possible case for you.
In some cases, a tired trucker may be engaging in truck driver negligence. In other cases, commercial trucking liability could be a factor, depending on the number of miles a company expects drivers to cover in a certain amount of time. Using cell phone records and other data, we may be able to find fraudulent driver logbooks or other documentation that can link truck driver fatigue to the accident that injured you or a loved one.
