Sleep Apnea and Commercial Drivers
While the cause of this Fort Worth 18 wheeler crash remains unknown, the fact that it involved a rear-end collision in the early hours of the morning begs the question: Had the truck driver fallen asleep? Our truck accident lawyers have successfully resolved a number of cases involving commercial drivers that fell asleep behind the wheel. In fact, our firm recently negotiated a record $6 million settlement with Greyhound after successfully obtaining a court-ordered sleep study of its driver following our discovery that a Department of Transportation medical examiner had notified Greyhound just one month prior to the crash that he suspected the driver of having sleep apnea following his annual physical exam.
