Fatigued/Asleep At the Wheel Crash Attorneys in Maine
Our Portland car accident lawyers have recovered millions for the injured
Many people don’t get enough sleep but when they get behind the wheel of a car, it’s a very big problem. Lack of sleep affects the skills needed to drive safely, and fatigued drivers can cause car accidents that leave other seriously hurt. The experienced car accident attorneys at Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC fight for the rights of car accident victims.
People who drive when they are fatigued have difficulty focusing their attention on the road. Lack of sleep also affects their ability to make good decisions when driving. Reaction times are slower, and they are less able to brake or steer suddenly. Some drivers actually fall asleep behind the wheel while they are driving.
Driving while fatigued is negligent and dangerous behavior that has very serious consequences. They can cause many types of accidents, including rear-end crashes, T-bone accidents and head-on collision. People who are involved in an accident with these drivers can suffer serious injuries.
Personal injury attorneys who stand up to insurance companies
If you were injured in an accident caused by a fatigued driver, you deserve financial compensation. Recovering compensation can be a frustrating and complicated process. Drivers in these accidents often deny doing anything wrong, and it can be difficult to prove that they were too fatigued to drive.
Don’t expect much help from insurance companies. They are only interested in making your claim go away as quickly and cheaply as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation. They may make you a settlement offer soon after the crash, but it will fall far short of covering all of the damages you have suffered.
