Question:

Does it matter if the trucker who hit my car was too tired to drive?

Answer:

Truck Driver Fatigue We got a call from a client the other day who asked, “Does it matter that the truck driver that hit and injured me was too tired to drive?” The answer is it certainly does matter and it certainly helps your case. The fact pattern of what happened is important. We have to know exactly what it was. Did he go through a red light? Did he make a left turn while you were going straight and had a green light, and he should’ve yielded? Did he hit you in the rear on the highway? Did he fall asleep, lose control, and hit you?

Certainly, if him being tired is shown to be a cause or a contributing factor in causing that accident, then it is something that we would want to know about. We would recommend that you make a phone call to our office and tell us exactly what happened, and we would certainly do what we can to help you in any way we can, including prosecuting a claim against the truck operator, trucking company, and/or owner of the truck.
