Gainesville Truck Accident Attorney

Accidents Caused by Tired Drivers

If a truck driver has been driving for many hours, he or she might easily become too fatigued to operate his or her vehicle.  Many large trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds.  If a driver is unable to control a vehicle weighing that many tons, the results can be utterly catastrophic.  If you have been seriously injured in an accident caused by a tired driver, you could be able to recover financial compensation for the injuries and losses resulting from the fatigued driver’s negligence with the help of a Gainesville personal injury attorney.

Reaction time is key when operating a large vehicle.  If a driver has not taken the necessary breaks to ensure that he or she is able to react appropriately to different situations that might occur on the road, it could result in catastrophic injuries to other individuals in smaller vehicles.  The impact and damage that a large truck can cause on a smaller passenger vehicle can result in traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and other serious injuries.

Your attorney will work to obtain the maximum compensation for you if you have been injured in a truck accident.  It is important that you are able to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident occurs in order to help ensure that you are able to get the service that you need.  Please don’t hesitate to contact the firm as soon as you have suffered an injury.  Obviously, it is most important that you receive medical attention immediately.
