The Payment You’re Entitled To…
A drowsy driver might not have intended to cause you harm, but they should be obligated to pay the expenses you’re facing because of the crash. When you file a personal injury claim, you can get payment for…
- Medical costs, including hospitalization, medications, rehabilitation and ongoing care
- Lost income due to limited work capacity or time missed at work
- Property damage experienced in the crash
- Physical and emotional pain, suffering and distress.
The financial, physical and emotional costs of a crash can be overwhelming, especially when you’re dealing with a serious injury. Through a personal injury claim, you can be given the tools you need to overcome these obstacles. When you work with a skilled, experienced car accident lawyer in Dallas, you can rest assured that your case is in good hands, and you can focus on your health and recovery.
Most drivers carry insurance that will cover some of the costs that their victims face. But insurance companies don’t always jump at the chance to make good on a claim. At Guajardo & Marks, we explore your options to make sure you get the payment you need. Whether we go through insurers, at-fault drivers or other parties, we will demand the compensation that helps you pay the many expenses you encounter after a drowsy driving accident.
Are You Unsure Whether the Driver was Fatigued?
In some cases, the injured party knows that the driver who caused the crash was drowsy. The driver might admit it, or the police report could list fatigue as a contributing factor. However, it’s often the case that the injured party isn’t entirely sure why the other driver caused their crash.
You should know that you aren’t responsible for proving why the other driver caused you harm. When you work with Guajardo & Marks, we will determine why the at-fault driver caused the accident. We will review police reports, interview witnesses and conduct other forms of research to get to the bottom of your wreck, so we can be sure the responsible parties are held accountable for your costs.
Whether you know exactly why the crash happened or simply want to hand off the task of fact-finding to your attorney, we can help. Call us today to schedule your free consultation.
Drowsy Driving Accidents are More Common Than You Think
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that 90,000 police-reported crashes happened in 2015, leading to 41,000 injuries and more than 800 fatalities. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention remind us that these estimates are likely low.
Fatigue plays a crucial role in a driver’s ability to safely operate their vehicle. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has conducted research suggesting that drivers who get just one to two hours less than the recommended seven hours of sleep per night nearly double their chances of being involved in a crash.
No driver wants to be tired behind the wheel, and they certainly don’t want to hurt others. But when a driver causes someone harm, they should be held responsible for the costs their victim is facing. That’s why filing a claim is so important; a claim can spare an injured person the overwhelming costs forced on them by a fatigued driver.
