Why don't truckers work harder to get the sleep they need?

Truck drivers are like you and me. They know that they need to get enough restful sleep to be at their best, but they rarely get it. Although their lives and the lives of those around them depend on their safe driving behaviors, truckers are often tempted to skip sleep or ignore the warning signs of sleep apnea and push past their exhaustion to keep working.

Every hour a driver sleeps, he loses an hour of wages. In order to make a better living, too many drivers hit the road before they should - breaking the law and endangering lives. While safety experts work to help truck drivers get better sleep through sleep apnea prevention information and programs, many believe that trucking companies should work harder to prevent illegal driving behaviors.

No matter who is to blame, it is a fact that tired drivers cause truck crashes in Denton and across Texas. Each day, innocent people are injured and killed in Texas 18-wheeler crashes. If you have been hurt or have lost a loved one in a Texas truck crash, you have the right to be angry. You also have the right to get the compensation you need to move on. Call 1.800.856.2347 today to schedule a free consultation with a Dallas truck crash lawyer
