Could truck driver fatigue have been a factor in a tragic crash?

It is not uncommon for semi-truck drivers to travel New York roadways during the night to avoid traffic and to meet deadline demands. Unfortunately, long hours and night travel can result in truck driver fatigue. Fatigue can result in danger for truck drivers and any other motor vehicle operators on the road. The actions prior to a recent accident have not been determined, but a recent accident involving a tractor-trailer resulted in the death of another driver.

The tractor-trailer was traveling along the road early in the morning when the accident occurred. At some point, the tractor-trailer drifted and struck a guardrail. The impact of the collision resulted in the truck crashing and turning on its side.

Not expecting a collision in front of him, another driver crashed into the turned-over truck. The driver was a 52-year-old man, and he did not survive the accident. Witnesses and rescue workers attempted to save the man's life by pulling him from his burning vehicle and transporting him to a medical center. The 36-year-old truck driver and his passenger also suffered injuries, but they have been discharged from medical care.

It is understandably difficult for the families of victims to understand all of the paperwork and hassle of an insurance claim following a tragic truck accident. New York personal injury attorneys are experienced with handling claims with insurance companies. When evidence of negligence such as truck driver fatigue is present, a family may have the option to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Some lawsuits may result in compensation for families that can assist with medical or burial expenses.
