Human Fatigue Expert Witness Testimony
Claims of human fatigue impairment are a rapidly expanding area of accident, injury and working hours litigation. Fatigue impairment on the job, or even driver fatigue on the commute from a shift, is increasingly claimed as the proximate cause of major accidents. Substantial judgments have been issued, and employers have been held responsible for imposing a work schedule -- or overtime shifts -- judged to induce human fatigue and error. That is why many companies consult with a fatigue expert.
At the same time, many companies are trying to escape the burden of excessively restrictive Hours of Service and working hours regulations. With the help of a human fatigue expert, they campaign for revisions to regulations by seeking waivers and exemptions from current work-rest regulations. Other companies face product liability suits,and may benefit by examining whether fatigue impairment is key to the lawsuit.
