Thousands of people are injured in auto accidents every year in Florida, with drowsy driving being a significant culprit behind many of these accidents. A tired driver poses as much risk on the road as a drunk driver, as the effects of lack of sleep are remarkably similar to alcohol impairment.

Our Tampa Bay car accident attorneys can help you with the assessment of your claim and assist you in negotiating a settlement with insurance companies. If we cannot find an adequate solution, we may even need to bring the case to court.

The Effects of Drowsy Driving

The source for many car accidents is due to a negligent driver, with many drivers aged between 18 and 29 years who work long shifts or odd hours. Drowsy driving might be a form of negligence if the driver chose to drive knowing that he or she was too tired. Because the law considers driving a privilege, every driver is held to the fact that he or she must not put others in danger.

Sleep deprivation has the following effects on the body:

  • Shortened attention span
  • Reduced reaction time
  • Decreased alertness
  • Memory problems
  • Increased stress
  • Diminished ability to focus

Sleep deprivation has a multitude of adverse effects on the body, and over time, can take its toll on the brain in particular. If you suspect that the driver was negligent due to lack of sleep, this may give weight to your injury claim. We urge you to consult first with our Tampa Bay car accident lawyers as soon as possible.
