Fatigued Truck Driving in San Francisco

by Staff Blogger | March 27th, 2017

Take a look around the room. We’d wager that 90% of everything you see was at one time transported on a tractor-trailer, and that might be a conservative estimate. The reality is without the trucking industry, our society would look much different. The products, materials, and equipment that keep us all rolling along without a hiccup are most often made available by the daily contributions of U.S. truck drivers.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, we respect and appreciate the efforts of truck drivers. What we don’t respect are trucking companies that put fatigued or overworked drivers on the road in the name of profits. Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. (20 times the weight of the average car). Controlling that amount of weight safely requires focus and precision—two attributes that can be impaired from driving fatigued. Over the years, we’ve seen the devastation a distracted truck driver can cause, which is why we continue to fight for victims and their families.
