LOUISVILLE, KY, June 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Louisville lawyer Karl Truman says with June being National Safety month it is a good time for truck drivers to think about how to take safety precautions on the roadways. Mr. Truman is the founder of well-known personal injury law firm Karl Truman Law Office, with locations in Louisville, Kentucky and Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Louisville truck accident lawyer Karl Truman also noted that driver fatigue has been increasingly in the spotlight this past week after celebrity Tracy Morgan's recent truck accident - which involved a tractor trailer crashing into his limousine, killing one and leaving several others, including Tracy Morgan in critical condition.
"June is National Safety Month, and sadly we have a clear and deadly example of what can happen with driver fatigue," said Louisville truck accident lawyer Karl Truman. "There is a lot of pressure on drivers and this should be a reminder of the importance of taking necessary safety precautions."
Mr. Truman says National Safety Month is a good time to recognize the rules set forth by the U.S. Department of Transportation, which include several safety measures such as 30-minute breaks within the first eight hours of shifts, reducing workweeks to 70 hours over eight days, and 34-hour break once per week.
Mr. Truman continued saying that with nearly 4,000 people killed annually involving large trucks, and with 20% of truck driving accidents associated to driver fatigue, National Safety Month is a great time to think before you take a long haul. Louisville residents have experienced the need for greater truck driver safety firsthand. Earlier this week, a local woman was killed after being hit by a cement truck on the Clark Memorial Bridge. This tragedy underscores the seriousness of truck accident injuries and serves as a reminder to all that making our roads safer is a responsibility that must be shared by everyone.
