Did you know that tiredness could lead to an injury claim through an accident lawyer in Tunbridge Wells? If you’re wondering how this works, read on and all will be revealed.
Road accidents are caused by tiredness
Many of us will drive when we’re tired. Modern life is tiring – we work long hours, we have families to take care of, we have to go shopping, and there are many other demands on our time.
But you really shouldn’t drive if you’re not fully alert. If you do, you’re putting yourself at risk – as well as the passengers in your car, and other road users.
That’s because tiredness can cause you to make mistakes. When you’re tired, you’re more likely to misjudge that turning and bash into the car on the other side of the road at the junction. You’re also at risk of falling asleep at the wheel.
Because of tiredness, what starts as a trip to the shops might end up with a visit to hospital, possibly in an ambulance, because you’ve been crashed into by another driver.
This may be followed by time off work, and a call to Accident Advice Helpline to enquire about claiming through an accident lawyer in Tunbridge Wells.
And all because another driver was too tired to be behind the wheel.
Don’t take the risk
If you’re feeling tired, don’t drive. It’s really not worth it. If you’re worried about other tired drivers being a problem, here’s some information that might be of use to you.
Tired drivers are likely to cause accidents…
- On long motorway journeys
- When it’s dark, especially between 2am and 6am
- In the afternoon (2pm – 4pm)
- If they’ve also had a drink
- If they’re on any medication that might impair them
- If they’ve just been at work
Call an accident lawyer in Tunbridge Wells
Of course, you might be unlucky even if you don’t venture out in the afternoon, or after dark, and you keep away from motorways and long, fast A-roads – tired drivers are everywhere.
