Tired Driver

Accidents Caused by Tired Truck Drivers in San Francisco

Were You Injured in a Truck Accident in California?

Tired driving is a serious and well-known problem that leads to unnecessary accidents, injuries and deaths on America's highways. It has been estimated that tired drivers are involved in more than 100,000 accidents each year in the United States. Sadly, those accidents typically result in 40,000 injuries and approximately 1,500 deaths.

Violation of Federal Safety Guidelines

Tired driving is a particularly major problem for the transportation industry as truckers are often forced to meet strict delivery deadlines. Truckers are not allowed to exceed 11 hours of driving per day and must also have a minimum 10 hour rest period afterward. Truck drivers must record all of this information in their driving logs. Sometimes drivers fail to adhere to these regulations and put their fellow motorists at great risk of a devastating collision with an 80,000-pound truck.

If you or someone in your family has been impacted by a collision with a tired driver, you should retain the services of a skilled legal team right away. Truck drivers and large transportation companies operate huge vehicles and sometimes transport dangerous materials and need to be held to a higher standard. At Bostwick & Peterson, our firm may be able to assist you in holding those responsible accountable.

The Benefits of Hiring an Experienced Attorney

Due to the forces generated by trucks that can weigh from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds, being involved in a truck accident places you at risk for catastrophic injuries that can affect you for the rest of your life. When a truck accident occurs, the transportation company and their large insurance carriers quickly get involved with the goal of aggressively protecting their own interests. Our San Francisco truck accident lawyers will aggressively fight for your interests. We are very informed in trucking industry regulations and we will thoroughly investigate the details of your accident to firmly establish if tired driving was a cause of your accident. In our 80 years of collective experience, we have collected over $1 billion for our clients and we may be able to help you receive maximum compensation.

We will aggressively pursue the full compensation you deserve for you and your family. Contact us today.
