Insomnia and motor vehicle wrecks

We have discussed a lot of the reasons why crashes take place, but there are many other important points to keep in mind. Some people may not realize that certain challenges in life, such as insomnia, can also increase the chances of a crash in various ways. If you have a hard time sleeping at night, it is vital to be aware of the potential risks associated with sleeplessness and prevent your insomnia from causing a collision and making your life harder. Some people are surprised to find out just how dangerous fatigued driving actually is, and you should never get behind the wheel when too tired to drive safe.

First, insomnia can result in chronic fatigue due to poor sleep on a regular basis. Drivers who always feel tired may pose a threat to the safety of other people and themselves while on the road. For example, they may swerve into another lane suddenly, colliding with a car. Or, a driver may fall asleep at the wheel or fail to respond to a sudden situation on the road.

Moreover, some people who struggle with insomnia take sleeping medication, and this can lead to all sorts of risk factors when it comes to driving. For example, someone who drives shortly after taking sleeping medication may be very drowsy, or they could even hallucinate, in some cases.

If you have been struck by someone who was driving while fatigued, you deserve a voice. Legal action may be on the table and it could be a way for you to get access to the support you need.
