The Role of Driver Fatigue and Trucking Accidents
Driver fatigue is a leading cause of car and truck accidents today. Fatigued driving is especially a problem with commercial truck drivers, who drive many miles and work extended hours to perform their jobs. When a driver loses concentration or falls asleep behind the wheel and an accident results, it is important to understand your legal options. You may be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost or diminished wages, and other damages.
The Law Office of Paul Englander, PLC, represents people who have been injured in auto accidents caused by driver fatigue. We offer legal assistance to clients in Phoenix as well as Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Glendale and other cities in Arizona.

When Driver Fatigue Causes Serious Injuries
Commercial truck drivers are required to follow federal trucking regulations, which limit the number of hours they can drive each day. However, truckers commonly work beyond the regulated number of hours to log more hours. Unfortunately, this leads to driver fatigue and a higher chance of causing a motor vehicle accident.
Driver fatigue is not limited to commercial truck drivers. Any tired, distracted or fatigued driver can cause an accident. The important thing to remember is that if any example of driver negligence has caused or contributed to a traffic accident, the accident victim may be eligible for compensation.
Whether you were injured by a fatigued car or truck driver, our law office can help you explore your legal options. If you have lost a family member in a fatal car accident or fatal truck accident, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.
