Did a Fatigued Truck Driver Cause Your Accident?

by Staff Blogger | March 15th, 2017

Hundreds of tractor-trailers pass through Nashville every day. They’re on our interstates, highways, and even back roads, delivering the necessities of every day life for individuals and businesses alike. We’re grateful for the role that truck drivers play in our society. Without them, we’d be in a much different situation. However, when trucking companies put fatigued drivers on the road, we’re less appreciative, as that puts fellow Nashvillians on the road at risk.

Tractor-trailers can carry up to 40 tons worth of cargo. To put that in perspective, the average car weighs around 2 tons, and you know the amount of damage that can be done with even that weight. Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 20 times that of a car. Just imagine the damage that much weight can cause when mishandled. A fatigued driver who feels pressure to get back on the road too soon can lead to devastating results.
