What does sleep apnea have to do with truck driving?

It has plenty to do with the truck drivers that share our roads. Sleep apnea is a condition where the upper airway is narrow or closed, causing a disruption to your sleep throughout the night. You may then suffer from drowsiness during the day due to a lack of continual night sleep. For a truck driver, this is bad news.

Our personal injury attorneys have seen enough truck crashes to know that drowsy driving is a significant contributing factor. Avoid a potential collision by knowing the signs of sleep apnea so you can seek medical treatment:

Signs of Sleep Apnea

  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Unable to stay awake or sleeping at inopportune times
  • Loud snoring
  • Diminished sex drive
  • Irritable
  • Depression
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Getting up to use the restroom numerous times during the night
  • Unable to concentrate
  • Poor memory

Imagine how difficult it would be for a truck driver to drive several hundred miles each day after his sleep suffers from the above symptoms. If these symptoms seem familiar to you, please seek help. Sleep apnea is a treatable condition. Your decision to seek treatment today could be the answer to preventing a potential Grapevine truck crash.
