According to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, semi-truck driving is one of the top 10 most dangerous professions in the country. These drivers are sitting for many hours at a time, making them predisposed to dealing with fatigue on the road. In addition to long hours of driving, truck drivers are also increasing strain on their arms, backs and legs.
A Life Changing Event
A Tennessee woman traveling through Anderson County in East Texas may have been a victim of this very situation. The young woman was driving along U.S. Highway 79 when a tractor-trailer collided with her. The woman suffered critical injuries and missed time from her job.
She went on to file a lawsuit against the truck driver and the company employing him for damages sustained. The victim will be seeking practical medical care fees and expenses for lost wages due to missed work time.
