It is highly dangerous to drive when fatigued, especially for people who drive large commercial-sized vehicles. Fatigue delays a driver’s reaction time and ability to maintain control of a vehicle on a road.
Truck driver fatigue is one of the most common cause of serious trucking accidents. If you have been injured in a collision with a negligent truck driver the lawyers at Walker Wallace PLC are ready to help. We offer experienced legal representation and handle trucking accidents throughout Kentucky.

Our truck accident attorneys work hard to build an effective legal strategy that will protect your rights and make sure you get the compensation and benefits you are entitled to.
Long Hours On The Road And Trucking Collisions
It’s not uncommon for trucking companies to be short of drivers. Drivers can then end up on the road for shifts longer than what is legally allowed per day, carrying heavier than recommended loads. The combination of fatigue and an overloaded vehicle can easily cause catastrophic injuries if a collision were to occur. Fatigue delays a driver’s senses, including his or her ability to react in a timely manner and maneuver a large, commercial-sized vehicle.
