Every year, thousands are injured and some are even killed due to disastrous truck accidents. Poor road conditions and truck malfunctions are just some of the many different factors that may cause a truck accident. However, some truck accidents result from drowsy and fatigued driver after long hours of driving.

To prevent exhausted drivers from getting behind the wheel of a truck, the state of Wisconsin instituted intrastate and interstate Hours of Service to determine how long the driver should be allowed to drive on the road. However, some trucking companies deliberately neglect these federal and state regulations to cut hiring costs and to avoid recruiting additional staff.
