Commercial truck drivers are required by regulation to take proper meal breaks and get the appropriate amount of sleep and rest while on the road. Truck company owners face heavy penalties for violating rules of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA). If a truck driver is involved in an accident because of fatigue or other FMCSA violations, the injured victims may seek significant compensation for financial damages.
On an average day, thousands of tractor trailers and commercial delivery trucks drive thousands of tons of products across Texas roads. According to U.S. government statistics, more than 6,000 people are injured or killed on Texas roads in accidents involving commercial trucks in a typical year. Many of the truck accidents are the result of truck drivers being pushed to their physical limits because of unrealistic schedules that don't allow enough time for adequate sleep or rest. Other truck accidents are caused by poorly maintained equipment or by equipment that does not meet federal and state requirements.
