Frequently Asked Questions

Sleep Deprivation & Truck Accidents

"If a sleep deprived truck driver caused my accident, can they be held responsible?"

The Sleep in America poll is one of the first studies to examine the relationship between transportation professionals’ sleep habits and their work performance.

  • 14% of truck drivers polled responded saying that sleepiness caused at least one safety problem while driving
  • 44% of truck drivers said they rarely or never get a good night’s sleep
  • 25% of the truck drivers polled cited their work schedule as a problem for their lack of sleep

Lack of sleep for transportation workers can make it difficult to maintain awareness during a driving shift. The inconsistent scheduling of what days to work, what time to work and the amount of time off between work shifts can make it hard to establish sleep/wake patterns for the driver.

Without transportation workers performing at their most rested and best, the amount of trucking accidents can greatly increase. When it comes to truck accidents, there can be many people responsible for the driver’s negligence – the truck driver, the owner of the truck, the person who leased the truck from the owner, the manufacturer of the vehicle, its tires or any other parts, the person or company who loaded the truck’s shipment.

All these parties will lay blame with the other as to not be the one responsible with the accident. If you are the one who has been injured due to a sleepy truck driver’s negligence or another kind of driver negligence, please contact The Kalka Law Group. It can be difficult to settle fault with a trucking insurance company, but our lawyers have settled numerous successful cases in our client’s favor.
