Driver Fatigue Car Accident Lawyer
According to a 2005 nation-wide poll, 60% of adult drivers in the United States have driven a car while feeling drowsy or fatigued within the previous year. Even more worrisome, 37% of respondents reported that they had actually fallen asleep at the wheel. Obviously, being asleep at the wheel is extraordinarily dangerous. But even driving while tired can significantly increase the risk of an accident, as studies have shown that the effects of fatigue are similar to those of being intoxicated. If you or a loved one needs help after a car accident involving driver fatigue or a drowsy driver, contact our Driver Fatigue Car Accident Lawyer.
