Over-the-road truck drivers are required by law to drive only a certain number of hours each day. At the same time, their employers require that they cover a lot of ground to make their deliveries in a timely manner. For some truck drivers, the faster and more ground they cover, the more they are paid. This unfortunately leads to many truck drivers and their employers overlooking the law and this can lead to very serious highway accidents.
The attorneys at Beale, Micheaels, Slack & Shughart are experienced in handling trucking accident cases. Our cases go a long way toward holding truck drivers and their employers responsible when drivers are over their maximum hours of driving and are therefore fatigued, which all too often leads to serious accidents and injuries.
