Did you know that fatigued driving causes over 100,000 accidents every year? Even worse, researchers believe the known figures of fatigue-related accidents are likely underreported. Trucking accident researcher Ronald Knipling (p. 160) has noted that "in-depth investigations consistently uncover about three fatigue-related crashes for every one designated by the police". The personal injury lawyers at Wyatt Law Firm understand that driving while fatigued once can come with lifelong repercussions.
"You drive lousy when you drive drowsy." Fatigued and drowsy driving is a serious problem in Texas, which sustains some of the highest drowsy driving deaths in the nation. A study conducted by sleepjunkie.org indicates that more than 1 in 5 of national driver fatigue-related fatalities in 2016 occurred in Texas. At Wyatt Law Firm, our personal injury and auto accident lawyers understand how serious this problem is.
