Pennsylvania truck accidents -- did driver fall asleep?

Tractor-trailer drivers in Pennsylvania who operate these heavy vehicles while they are tired or exhausted may cause devastating accidents with multiple injuries and fatalities. Suffering exhaustion while driving reduces the driver's ability to recognize potentially dangerous situations and the ability to react appropriately in order to avoid a collision. In fact, it is not uncommon for drivers in such a state to fall asleep and cause truck accidents without even being aware of surrounding traffic at the time of the collision.

Victims of truck accidents may claim from driver and truck owner

Drivers of heavy vehicles may not always recognize the threat they pose on Pennsylvania roads. Truck accidents are known to result in severe injuries, or even fatalities, when cars are involved. The sheer weight and size of a truck traveling at a high rate of speed can make it a deadly weapon.

Early morning commutes tend to be hectic and busy. Heavy traffic can cause some drivers panic about being late. This is especially true if commuters encounter frequent stops at traffic signs and signals in addition to the stop and go traffic they are sitting in. In these situations, it is important for drivers to be aware of their surroundings and the other vehicles around them. If a driver is distracted because they are texting or they are negligent because they are following a vehicle too closely or they are speeding, a serious accident could result.
