How can a trucker's sleep apnea lead to a truck accident?

At one time or another, most people have felt like they could fall asleep at any moment. When you are in safe surroundings, this is nothing a good night's rest cannot fix. However, when a person is responsible for controlling a massive piece of machinery, such as a tractor-trailer, falling asleep on the spot is a big problem. Truck accidents arising from sleep apnea put the trucker in immediate danger, and it puts the lives of other motorists in danger as well.

Getting to the bottom of truck accidents and their causes

If you think about it in the most logical way possible, truck accidents (and other vehicle crashes) are simply bound to happen. Roadways here in Pennsylvania and the rest of the country are clogged with motor vehicles of all kinds, including massive tractor-trailers. Chances are you or someone you know will eventually experience a vehicle accident. If the vehicle is a large and heavy commercial truck, serious injuries are very likely to occur.

Why do drowsiness and fatigue lead to truck accidents?

When night falls in Pennsylvania, most people have the luxury of going to bed and getting some much-needed sleep. This is not so for the majority of truck drivers who often drive through the night to deliver their cargo on time. Night driving combined with lack of sleep and fatigue contributes greatly to the nation's volume of truck accidents.

Understanding what type of commercial vehicle caused your injury

When people think about truck accidents, most of us envision crashes between a tractor-trailer and a smaller passenger vehicle. However, other types of commercial trucks are just as hazardous as semitrucks are. All commercial trucks are large and heavy when compared with cars and pickups. This means victims of truck accidents usually suffer more serious injuries in a crash.

Make sure your truck accident settlement offer meets your needs

We understand why victims want to expedite the process of fighting for compensation in the aftermath of truck accidents. They are suffering, possibly disabled and anxious to put the matter behind them. However, we must caution injured victims to slow down just a little to make certain that any settlement offered will meet their financial needs.

Proving negligence is critical in truck accident injury claims

Bucks County, Pennsylvania, features highways and even rural roads that semis and other large or heavy truck drivers use to transport their goods. In most cases, truckers make a great effort to drive responsibly and safely. After all, they do not want to experience truck accidents any more than private motorists do.

Disturbing facts that reveal the dangers of large truck accidents

Most people realize that colliding with a large tractor-trailer is dangerous. However, it is still difficult for many to develop a clear understanding of the devastation associated with truck accidents. Unless you or someone you care about has been involved in such a collision, it is hard to grasp the amount of destruction these crashes cause.

When you think about truck accidents, you probably envision a collision between a massive tractor-trailer and a small passenger vehicle. However, commercial trucks of shapes and sizes can cause a lot of physical damage when a collision occurs. Even smaller box trucks used by local businesses or utility companies can cause victims to suffer serious injuries in a crash.
