Truck drivers have unique and strenuous jobs. They are put in the difficult position of balancing company expectations with the law. Legally, truckers are only allowed to drive a certain number of hours each week. However, it is still their job to cover as much ground as possible within the shortest period of time. Sometimes, the more ground a trucker covers, the more he or she gets paid. This often results in truck driver fatigue and can cause fatal injuries to other motorists. When these accidents occur, our Provo, UT, firm is ready to help victims collect compensation.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton in Provo, Utah, we have an in-depth understanding of the nature of the trucking industry, and more than 50 years of combined experience representing accident victims.

Truck driver error and fatigue are two of the most frequent causes of trucking accident injuries. When truckers spend long hours on the road and fail to take the required rest breaks, fatigue sets in and their alertness levels plummet. Additionally, if truck drivers are poorly trained or do not follow appropriate rules and regulations, even the smallest error can cause a devastating accident, injuries and even wrongful death.
