Fatigued Driver Blamed for Fatal Accident

Drowsy driving can impair reaction times and cause people to make bad judgments, just as driving under the influence of alcohol can do. Some people overestimate their abilities and think they will be able to stay awake. Yet, fatigued drivers are often less observant and react slower to changes in road and traffic conditions. They may even fall asleep drifting off the road or into oncoming traffic.

Almost all of us have gotten behind the wheel feeling tired. Studies have shown people are most fatigued in the early morning hours between midnight and 6:00 am, and again mid afternoon, between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. Sadly, a recent auto accident brought this problem to light once again.

The accident was reported just before 7:00 am, fitting the pattern of when many drivers may be dangerously fatigued while driving. A woman was in route to take her two small children to daycare before proceeding to work when her vehicle veered off the road and struck a tree. The woman was rushed to the hospital in serious condition; her two children died. According to police reports, when the woman began to run off the left side of the road, she allegedly over-corrected the vehicle and struck the tree. She was last reported to be in stable condition at a hospital in Richmond, Virginia. Her children suffered serious injuries and were airlifted to the hospital where they later died.

If you drive drowsy, you are putting yourself and others at risk. As the industry leader in auto accident lawsuit funding, Lawsuit Financial has seen first hand, the devastating results of an accident due to driver fatigue. Do not drive while fatigued, talk or text while driving, eat and drive, put on make-up or shave, or look at directions. Eliminating the risk will go a long way to preventing serious and fatal auto accidents.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver, Lawsuit Financial recommends you consult an experienced auto accident attorney to understand your rights. Once you retain an attorney and file a wrongful injury lawsuit, if you are facing financial devastation, give us a call; you may qualify for a lawsuit cash advance, known as litigation funding.

A lawsuit cash advance is money against the future settlement and can help pay funeral and burial expenses, mortgage payments, car payments, and important expenses bills so you can wait for fair compensation. The application process takes less than five minutes. There is no cost to apply, no upfront fees, no monthly payments, no credit checks and no hassles. If you qualify for litigation funding, the money arrives fast, within 24-48 hours.

Obtaining litigation funding is a smart strategic move; it is a better solution than settling your valuable personal injury lawsuit for less than it is worth.
