Sleep Deprivation

Sleep deprivation is a common condition affecting 47 million American adults, or almost a quarter of the adult population. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, driver sleepiness is related to one in five serious car crash injuries. The National Sleep Foundation estimates that about 20 percent of Americans have dozed off while driving.

Commercial truck drivers are at an increased risk for accidents related to sleep deprivation. Truck drivers often work long hours and drive late into the night or early in the morning. Strict deadlines often force drivers to ignore drowsiness or to use legal and illegal stimulants that may also impair their ability to safely operate a vehicle.

Because it is very difficult to prove lack of sleep as the cause of an accident (no objective test exists to measure driver drowsiness), it is essential that victims have experienced car and truck accident lawyers on their side. Contact our firm serving Jefferson City, Republic, and all of Missouri today if you suspect your accident was caused by driver fatigue.

DUI — Driving Under the Influence

Driving under the influence, or DUI, does not only refer to a driver impaired by alcohol. DUI law encompasses drivers impaired by legal or illegal drugs, as well. An accident involving a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol commonly results in serious injuries or even wrongful death.

Regardless of whether a drug was prescribed by a physician or was purchased over the counter, any substance that can affect a driver's mental or physical capacities can result in a DUI. A driver may be convicted of DUI even if the drug is a cold medicine or caffeine pills.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a person is injured by a drunk driver every minute of every day. We have represented many drunk driving accident victims and have helped them obtain fair compensation. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as the result of a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol, contact our car and truck accident lawyers — serving Republic, Jefferson City, and Missouri victims statewide — today and arrange a consultation.
