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.
