Fatigued Truck Drivers: A Recipe for Disaster
Plenty of folks in Arkansas drive big trucks, or are related to someone who does. And, at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton we value Arkansas truck drivers and the contributions they make to our communities. What we don’t appreciate are large trucking companies that put undue pressure on their drivers or push them to the point where they have to drive fatigued. Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. and carry with it enough force to crush a car in less than a second. Put that kind of weight together with a pressured or fatigued driver, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Truck accident victims in Arkansas shouldn’t have to pay for the trucking company’s negligence. The Arkansas truck accident attorneys at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton work to hold these companies accountable for the harm they cause. For the victims, that means going after compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Financial compensation won’t erase the accident from happening, but it can help you move on without a financial burden.
