Alabama Car Wreck Lawyers                                 Drowsy Driving

Drowsy Driving:  According to a 2012 report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, two of every five drivers (41%) admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel.  Furthermore, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that an estimated 100,000 wrecks occur yearly as a result of driver fatigue, with an estimated 1,550 traffic fatalities resulting from drowsy driving.

One report from France indicated that driving while fatigued was almost as bad as driving under the influence when it comes to reaction time and judgment, yet for some reason driving while fatigued is not seen in the same dangerous light as driving under the influence, and in today’s society 10% of adults state that they are chronically sleep deprived.

If you are tired and fatigued, pull over and rest.  Take a nap if necessary; it is much safer for you and for others on the road.

If you or a family member were injured in a car wreck due to another driver having driver fatigue, you don’t have to deal with everything by yourself.  Your time is best spent recovering and doing what the doctor says you need to do to recover; you probably don’t have the time or energy to ensure all the necessary steps are taken to ensure you and your family receives all the compensation you need to get back on your feet.  That is where we come in.

If you have been injured in an automobile accident and you have questions about your rights under Alabama law, don’t hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Car Accident attorneys at Powell and Denny today for a free consultation.  Appointments are available in person, or virtually through Zoom for your convenience.
