Truck Driver Fatigue Attorneys in Sacramento

We Fight Hard Because Your Settlement Matters

Were you involved in an accident that was caused by a tired truck driver? Carichoff Law Group, P.C. can help you hold the truck company and the driver responsible for the injuries you have incurred.

When that driver is behind the wheel of a multi-ton semi, 18-wheeler, or other large truck, crashes and collisions can result in catastrophic injuries or death. Though there are federal regulations in place to help curb the prevalence of accidents caused by overworked or fatigued drivers, crashes are still common across the U.S.

To experience the Carichoff Law Group, P.C. difference, call (916) 471-6098 today to discuss your injuries.

Hours of Service Rules Commercial Truck Drivers

Truck driver fatigue is a leading cause of truck crashes, accounting for almost one-fifth of all truck accidents. To promote the safety of all motorists, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has placed restrictions on the number of hours truckers can drive without resting.

According to the FMCSA regulations:

  • Truckers must not drive more than 11 hours after 10 hours of rest
  • Truckers must take a 30-minute break after eight hours of continuous driving
  • Truckers must take 34 hours off after driving 60/70 hours in 7 to 8 days
