How To Make Sure You Don't Drive Drowsy

Driving Drowsy: A Serious Matter

If you think that driving while you're tired is okay, think again. Drowsy driving can impair your skills and lead to tragic consequences: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drowsy driving accounts for an average of 56,000 car crashes per year, resulting in 1,550 deaths and 40,000 nonfatal injuries.

Determining fault and liability in a multi-car accident

When someone is injured in a car accident caused by another driver's negligence, the negligent driver can be held liable for the injured party's damages. But first, the court must determine who was at fault for the accident and the victim's injuries. This can be difficult in many two-car accidents, but it is especially tricky when more than two vehicles are involved.

Can I recover compensation if I was partly at fault?

Most of the time when this blog discusses car accidents, we talk about cases where one party caused the crash through negligence, while the other party was completely blameless. Issues of liability are relatively straightforward in these cases. For example, when a drunk driver crashes into a sober driver who is legally stopped at a stop light, and the sober driver is injured, we can see that the drunk driver caused the accident through negligence and therefore should be held liable for the sober driver's damages.
