Drowsy Driving Car Accident Attorney
Whether due to substance use or simply not getting enough sleep, a driver who is unable to focus on the road in front of them poses a grave threat to those with whom they share the road. While not a behavior as widely condemned by society, driving while seriously fatigued can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated by alcohol or drugs. When a serious accident is caused by a driver who chose to drive when they were extremely tired, that driver should be held financially responsible for their actions. Whether through an insurance claim or lawsuit, New York drowsy driving accident victims have a right to compensation, and a drowsy driving car accident attorney at Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP can help. Contact us today for a no-cost consultation on your drowsy driving accident claim.
Studies find drowsy driving as dangerous as drunk driving
We’ve all learned that driving after one too many drinks is dangerous and illegal, and there is more and more evidence showing the dangers of driving while fatigued. Recent studies have shown that drivers are more likely to be involved in a crash after getting less sleep than they normally do, and that drivers who habitually get less than seven hours’ sleep a night also have an elevated risk of being involved in a crash. In fact, drivers who get behind the wheel after four or five hours’ sleep a night are just as likely to get in an accident as a driver with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit.
