"Drowsy driving" has become one of the most common causes of car accidents. In fact, according to a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, they account for approximately 17 percent of car accidents that result in another's death. At the Halperin Law Center, we believe that our clients deserve to be represented to the fullest in pursuit of fair compensation for the accident and their injuries.
You should never be made to pay for the costs of your car accident on your own if you know another person caused it. We urge you to contact our Richmond car accident attorneys and request a free case review.
Taking Action Against Tired Drivers
In Virginia, a tired driver is dangerous – nearly as dangerous as a drunk driver. A driver who nods off while driving might swerve or weave in and out of the lanes without even realizing it. Because they are not alert, they lack the necessary judgment to brake in time and prevent a collision or avoid an obstacle.
These individuals are more likely to cause a drowsy driving accident:
- Truck drivers and other commercial drivers
- Employees who work the night shift
- Individuals who have been prescribed certain medications
- Those who have an untreated medical condition
- Business travelers
As Richmond car accident attorneys, we are committed to helping our clients find the maximum possible compensation for their injuries. If someone else is to blame for your accident, you have the right to take action and hold them accountable for their actions or inactions. The compensation you receive can be used to cover the costs of medical bills and treatment, lost wages, rehabilitation, counseling, and other expenses incurred.
