Each year, thousands of accidents are brought on by the substantial risk of driver fatigue or sleepiness. Because there is no quantitative test, it is considerably harder to conduct research to determine the precise number of accidents caused by exhaustion than accidents caused by alcohol impairment. The Law Offices of Reynaldo Diaz, Jr. has a wealth of experience in handling vehicle accident claims in Texas. He employs tried and true litigation strategies to gather concrete proof of a driver’s sleep patterns at the time of a crash. When the case is submitted before a judge and jury, these tactics enable us to demonstrate that fatigue had a part in the auto accident.
Car accidents are caused by fatigue because it slows reaction time, makes people less alert, and makes it difficult to receive and integrate information. The risk with being sleepy is that if a person sits still, becomes bored, or travels a long distance, they start to let down their coping mechanisms, which may result in them nodding off behind the wheel. Drowsy driving can be caused by several things, such as acute sleep deprivation, job-related sleep restriction, individual needs, lifestyle choices, fragmented sleep, and circadian influences. For peak performance, adults need seven to nine hours of sleep, with less than four hours affecting their ability to pay attention (www.MayoClinic.com). Losing one to two hours of sleep each night might cause drivers to accumulate a sleep debt that results in chronic drowsiness.
