Taking a look at driver fatigue and truck crashes

When truck drivers are on the road after failing to get a sufficient amount of sleep or having already spent too much time behind the wheel, they put the lives of others at risk. Unfortunately, this happens far too often in Monmouth and across New Jersey. Even with awareness campaigns and media coverage, truck driver fatigue remains a serious threat and continues to result in fatal wrecks.

When a truck accident occurs, life may never be the same for those involved. From death and permanent disability to lost wages and medical expenses, the consequences of these wrecks can be severe. In Monmouth and throughout New Jersey, people who have had their life turned upside down by truck accidents should remain committed to moving forward after the wreck.

Truck wrecks take place for numerous reasons, from a distracted truck driver to a negligent truck company. Sadly, truck accidents can be particularly dangerous due to the sheer size of a semi. When someone is involved in a semi truck crash in Monmouth or any other New Jersey city, they may lose their life or suffer from a permanent disability afterward. As a result, anyone who has been hurt or is dealing with the loss of a loved one following a truck accident should do everything they can to try and move forward.

Any accident that takes place on the road can lead to significant injuries and loss of life. However, when a semi truck crash occurs, the outcome can be especially devastating due to their sheer size and the extended amount of time it often takes for them to stop. Furthermore, in Monmouth and across New Jersey, truck accidents may be more likely to take place when a truck company pushes their drivers too far, resulting in truck driver fatigue. Because of these risks, both truck drivers and the companies they work for have a responsibility to make safety a top priority.
