Everyday people get behind the wheel of a vehicle while exhausted or drowsy, which results in accidents and injuries all the time. Just last year Florida had nearly 4,000 drowsy driving related accidents. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety And Motor Vehicles, it is risky to drive drowsy, because fatigue can:

    • Slow down your thought process and reaction time;

    • Affect your judgment and vision;

    • Impair your sense and abilities; and

    • Cause micro-sleeping (“nodding off”) or falling completely asleep.

If you were injured by a drowsy driver, our experienced Fort Myers drowsy driving accident injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve!

Vehicle Accident Related Injuries Can Be Extremely Costly

Depending on the extent of your injuries, it is likely that you’ve wracked up some enormous bills that are looming over your head when you should be focused on making a swift recovery. Some of the injuries a drowsy driving accident can cause include head trauma, burn injuries, paralysis, and more. Injuries like these can leave you responsible for costs like: 

    • Hospital Stay

    • ER Visit/Ambulance Transport

    • Medication

    • Check-ups/Deductibles/Co-pays

    • Casts, Crutches or Wheelchairs

    • Surgery

    • X-rays, CT Scans Or MRI’s

    • Dental Work

    • And more!

You may even have to take time off of work without pay or become permanently disabled and unable to earn a living ever again. You may also suffer from emotional trauma, such as motor vehicle accident post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and constant pain as a result of the injuries you sustained. This isn’t fair to you when you didn’t cause the accident!

If you were the victim of a drowsy driving crash, and you’re stressed about growing bills, you need a Fort Myers drowsy driving accident lawyer who will fight diligently to get you the compensation you deserve. 

Why Do You Need A Fort Myers Drowsy Driving Accident Injury Lawyer?

When an auto accident occurs due to a driver being drowsy, why should you be left to pick up the pieces of the damages they caused? You can’t and shouldn’t have to deal with it all yourself! Your insurance company and/or the responsible party’s insurance company should cover any and all costs related to the accident and your injuries. However, it is no secret that insurance companies don’t like to compensate accident victims; they usually attempt to deny or devalue claims. This is unacceptable. In order to ensure you get paid what your injuries are truly worth, you need to work with the lawyers at The Florida Group to fight against corrupt insurance agencies and get rightful damages.
