Florida Drowsy Driver Truck Accidents Are Common. Attorney Glatthorn Can Help
Truck drivers, especially long haul truckers driving cross country, are required by law to take mandatory breaks. These laws exist to make sure truck drivers get enough sleep. Unfortunately, not every truck driver follows these rules. And in certain cases, truck companies create unrealistic schedules or outright require truckers to work far beyond their maximum hours.
The result? Many truck drivers fall asleep at the wheel, causing serious truck accidents. When these accidents happen, the consequences can often be extremely serious. Since the truck driver was asleep and didn't attempt to slow down, many trucks crash going full speed into other vehicles. As a result, serious injuries and fatalities are common in drowsy driver truck accidents.
Those who survive may face surgery, hospitalization, therapy and medication. Treatment may last months or even years. The medical expenses can become overwhelming. And injuries may prevent victims from working, resulting in lost income. If they were a financial provider, this can affect the entire family.

Building a strong case against a truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel might sound simple. But such cases are often much more complicated than many people might expect. Often, the driver will deny any wrongdoing. And just because you believe the truck company might have forced the trucker to work longer hours, proving that the company is guilty of truck company negligence is an entirely different matter.
That’s why attorney Glatthorn conducts an investigation to find out how your accident really happened. He reviews all documentation, including accident reports and medical records. He identifies and interviews all witnesses. If necessary, he’ll bring in experts to help establish negligence. He will find out which parties were responsible for the accident that left you injured.
Insurance companies may offer you a quick settlement, hoping you will just accept it and go away. But these initial settlement offers never completely cover the true damages suffered by victims. For example, there may be future medical expenses related to the injury that aren’t addressed. That’s why David Glatthorn always takes the time to determine the true value of your claim.
