Commonly Reported Causes Of Driver Fatigue In Clearwater, FL
A fatigued driver can struggle to concentrate or make swift decisions. This lack of focus can lead to driver errors that cause collisions. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research, driver fatigue can be caused by:
- Extended periods of sleeplessness
- Sleep/wake cycle disruptions
- Boredom and monotony
- Lengthy periods of inactivity
- Health factors or medication use
When our Clearwater car accident lawyer accepts your case, we work hard to prove the driver’s mental state at the time of the accident. Our investigation will also prove the elements of negligence that allow you to pursue the at-fault driver — duty, breach, causation, and damages.
Our Legal Team Will Collect Evidence Of The Negligent Driver’s Fatigued State
On your own, it can be hard to prove the at-fault driver was fatigued and caused your accident. Our familiarity with personal injury law means we understand the proof your case requires. The evidence we collect for your case file will include:
- Car accident report: It will contain key contact information, descriptions of the accident scene, and the investigating officer’s narrative
- Witness statements: They can offer objective recollections of the collision from varying points of view
- Expert testimonials: Subject matter experts can provide detail on how fatigue affects a driver’s ability to drive safely
We also use accident reconstruction to prove the car was drifting or swerving. When you leave evidence collection to us, your case file will also include proof of the accident’s costs. This can include your medical records and bills, proof of income loss, and vehicle repair or replacement estimates.
