The Risks that Fatigued Tractor Trailer Drivers Pose to Our Highways

Injury Lawyer Carma Henson remains concerned about the serious risk that fatigued tractor trailer drivers pose to our highways.  “Almost every tractor trailer accident I have ever handled has resulted in some level of brain injury to the victim,” Henson says. “The amount of force involved in a tractor trailer collision is immense, and it stands to reason that the occupants of the car will be thrown around violently, resulting in some degree of head injury.”  One of the biggest causes of driver fatigue is sleep apnea, and sleep scientists at Harvard University are calling for mandatory federal rules that would increase screening procedures for at-risk tractor trailer drivers.    To learn more, follow this link to Jonel Aleccia’s article for MSNBC on this issue:
