Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Commercial Motor Vehicle Cases

Published by Texas Trial Lawyers Association


Summary

Fatigue-related crashes continue to rank as one of the most dangerous hazards motorists face on the road. The statistics are staggering. One recent estimate puts the number of fatigue- related crashes per year at over 100,000, which accounted for over 1,500 deaths.1 The problem is particularly prevalent among commercial truck and bus drivers, with new research indicating that 1 in 5 crashes involving large trucks or busses are caused by fatigue.2 This is perhaps why, in 2017, the National Transportation Safety Board again put reducing fatigue-related crashes on its “Most Wanted List,” its annual list of the most significant transportation safety issues that is intended to raise public awareness and, ultimately, create changes in safety laws.
