The very nature of being a long-haul truck driver involves spending many hours driving. Naturally, spending many hours sitting behind the wheel may induce fatigue in the driver. This fatigue increases the risk of danger for both the truck driver and anyone else who may be on the road.
It comes as no surprise then that long-haul truck drivers may cause serious and devastating injuries due to excessive work demands that have them working incredibly long hours. In 2015 alone, nearly 4,000 people died in accidents involving large trucks. Nearly seventy percent of those deaths were occupants of cars and passenger vehicles. Another fifteen percent were pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists.

Kerrigan, 148 N.J. 1, 15 (1997).Â

A contract is â€śa legally enforceable agreement to do or not to do something.â€ť See, Model Charge No. 4.10C, “Bilateral Contracts- Existence of a Legally Enforceable Contract”. We enter into contracts every day, probably without even realizing it. Anytime we purchase or sell something, we enter into a contract. For instance, simply by purchasing a pack of gum at a convenience store, a contract forms. We agree to pay the price of the gum, and the store agrees to give us the gum. Entire blog →
