Fatigued Truck Driver Accident Attorney in Michigan - What You Need to Know to Protect Your Rights
Our attorneys know that tired truck drivers throughout Southeast Michigan put everyone on the road at risk. We have seen first-hand the devastating impact of such accidents. Highway truck accidents on I-75, I-94 and I-96 are routinely caused by drivers who struggle to stay awake behind the wheel instead of stopping for a mandatory break.
Drowsy truck drivers aren't just a danger on the busy interstates that connect Macomb, Wayne, and Oakland counties. Overworked delivery van drivers can be just as dangerous on any side street in the greater Detroit area. They may not be alert enough to stop in time and may cause a rear-end accident or a head-on collision. Were you or a loved one injured or killed because of a drowsy trucker? Contact Fraser & Souweidane today to discuss your legal options with an experienced attorney. You may be entitled to compensation for damages, which may include physical, emotional and financial losses.
Under federal law, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the number of hours a truck driver can spend behind the wheel. These important "hours-of-service rules" spell out how long truck drivers can operate on a daily and weekly basis. Truck drivers, however, may feel pressure from trucking companies to break these rules to turn over a greater profit. The company may have known that the driver was violating rules, but turned a blind eye.
Trucking companies that put profits ahead of safety must be held accountable for accidents involving serious injuries and fatalities. At Fraser & Souweidane, we stand up for the rights of the injured and families who have lost loved ones in truck accidents.
