What makes asleep at the wheel accidents complicated

Asleep at the wheel accidents might seem straightforward. Another driver fell asleep and caused an accident. But these types of crashes often turn out to be very complicated for many different reasons, including:

  • The driver who fell asleep often has no memory of the accident.
  • The at-fault driver may try to blame you for causing the crash.
  • The other driver's insurance company may blame you or your loved one for causing the crash.
  • The other driver's insurance company may downplay the severity of the accident.
  • The insurance company may use conflicting evidence to deny your claim.

You know what really happened. We can work with you to set the record straight.

Types of injuries

Asleep at the wheel accidents often result in serious injuries or fatalities. That's because these accidents typically involve high-speed, head-on collisions since the sleeping driver didn't slow down before impact. Common serious injuries associated with asleep at the wheel accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe neck injuries
  • Broken bones

Whatever type of injury you're dealing with, we want to help you every step of the way.

How our lawyers can help you

Evidence builds strong legal cases. This is especially true when it comes to asleep at the wheel accidents. That's why we want to get straight to work investigating your accident. As your attorney, we can review your accident report. We also regularly visit the scene of the crash and can consult with an accident reconstruction expert if necessary. Damage to your vehicle - and where it occurred - often says a lot about who was at fault in your accident.

We will then likely present our findings to the other driver's insurance company. They might agree with us and offer you a fair settlement. Or we can use such information to negotiate a better settlement with them or fight for you in court.

Whatever the scenario, you can count on our experienced car accident lawyers to be there for you when it matters most. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation right now. We're on your side.
