Thankfully, Florida car accident victims can receive compensation regardless of whether they contributed to their accident or not; however, if they suffered severe injuries, their insurance may be insufficient for their needs. If you were injured by a fatigued driver, you may be wondering what your options are for additional compensation. Does driver fatigue make the at-fault party liable? Our team is ready to answer your questions and assess your legal options.
Our North Port driver fatigue car accident lawyer could help you hold the at-fault party accountable if you were injured in a car accident caused by driver fatigue. Driver fatigue is a factor in a significant number of crashes, so our attorneys can use the evidence at our disposal and precedents for previous cases to fight for your compensation.

Types Of Monetary Damages In North Port Driver Fatigue Car Accidents
Every drowsy driver collision injury claim is different, so we cannot tell you how much compensation you might be able to pursue until we investigate your situation.
Here are some of the common categories of damages we have won for our injury clients:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Vehicle repair or replacement
- Home or vehicle modifications
- Diminished vehicle value
- Pain and suffering
We might also be able to seek compensation on behalf of the family or personal representative if you lost a loved one in the car crash.
The Kinds of Damages You Are Eligible to Recover May Vary
In Florida, those who suffer injuries in a car accident can receive compensation regardless of their degree of fault. While this allows greater access to medical care, people are usually limited by their Personal Injury Protection (PIP) limits. If your injuries are severe enough, these limits may be insufficient to cover everything you’ve lost.
Our attorneys can determine if you are eligible to file a lawsuit for damages like pain and suffering and diminished vehicle value. If you meet the criteria, we can use the evidence we gather to prove that driver fatigue caused your accident and injuries.
The Statute Of Limitations For Your North Port Driver Fatigue Car Accident
Please do not wait too long to contact us about your North Port car accident case. Florida has deadlines for filing lawsuits, and after the deadline in your case expires, no one will be able to help you. These laws can be confusing, however, so please reach out to us even if you think your deadline has passed.
The statute of limitations, also called the filing deadline, is four years in Florida, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). If you lost a loved one in a collision, Florida law only gives you two years to file the wrongful death lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d).
Driver Fatigue Is Deadly
Driver fatigue is dangerous, but the accidents it causes are preventable. This means that driving while fatigued is a form of negligence. Whether the drowsy driver is inattentive, has a slowed reaction time, or falls asleep at the wheel, the result can be deadly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 633 deaths in 2020 from drowsy driving-related crashes.
Despite your best efforts, you cannot control the alertness of other drivers. If you got injured in a North Port car accident that was someone else’s fault, you can work with an attorney on your injury claim. We can use the evidence we gather to demonstrate that the other driver’s fatigue was negligent, caused your accident, and resulted in your injuries.
