Falling asleep while driving can be blamed for hundreds of deadly crashes each year. It's not unusual for motorists to fall asleep at the wheel, even briefly. When an asleep-at-the-wheel accident occurs, drivers and passengers may end up with severe injuries, including brain injuries or broken bones.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 49 percent of all men and 26 percent of women say they have fallen asleep while driving. Overall, 37 percent of U.S. drivers admit to falling asleep while behind the wheel at least once in their lifetime.
If you or a loved one has sustained a personal injury because another driver has fallen asleep behind the wheel, our law firm can help you get the full compensation you deserve. Turn to Flager & Yockey for help.
Falling asleep while driving is preventable. Drivers who are drowsy have the choice to pull over to the side of the road.
While people who choose to drive while sleepy are not intentionally acting maliciously or with premeditation, their choice to not pull over nevertheless is negligent and irresponsible.
Remember, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries that are a result of an asleep-at-the-wheel accident. The fatigued driver is ultimately responsible for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages that may have been a result of the accident, whether you were injured as a passenger, a pedestrian or while on a bicycle.
If you or a loved one has been involved in an automobile accident in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester Counties and all of Eastern Pennsylvania, including Bethlehem, Allentown, Easton, Harrisburg, Hazelton, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, Williamsport and the Poconos as well as the entire State of New Jersey, contact Flager & Yockey, P.C. A car accident lawyer with our firm can help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
