Drowsy driving is reckless and dangerous. If you or someone you loved was seriously injured in a crash caused by a driver who dozed off or fell asleep at the wheel, call our North Tampa drowsy driving accident lawyers today to learn how we can help you fight for justice and maximum monetary compensation for your injuries.

You Deserve Compensation.

Driving fatigued causes slow reaction times, poor judgment, and decreased vision; it often leads to collisions. In 2021, 3,129 crashes in Florida occurred because at least one driver involved in the crash was asleep or fatigued, according to data from the Department of Florida Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). If you’ve been hurt by the negligent actions of a drowsy driver, you’re not alone.

Being injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault can be a devastating life experience – physically, emotionally, and financially. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, a person’s bad decision to drive tired could cost you potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars for things like:

  • ambulatory transport
  • imaging tests (X-rays, MRIs, etc.)
  • bloodwork & transfusions
  • surgeries
  • hospitalization
  • rehabilitation
  • chiropractic care
  • physical therapy
  • mental health counseling
  • medications
  • copays
  • deductibles
  • medical devices
  • specialized care
  • emergency dental work & subsequent dental care
  • lost wages (for the time you have to take off work while you heal)
  • and more.

Even if you have great health insurance, you shouldn’t have to pay any portion of these costs out of your own pocket. The insurance company of the driver who hit you, or your own insurance company (if the drowsy driver was uninsured), should pay, and you have a legal right to pursue damages from them. Our North Tampa drowsy driving accident lawyers can help you do that!

Our Law Firm Can Recover A Fair Settlement.

Accident victims need legal representation because insurance companies are more concerned with their bottom lines than they are injured victims’ best interests. They are experts at paying out as little as possible to claimants in order to keep more money in their own pockets, and will do anything they can to deny or devalue your injury claim. The Florida Law Group will advocate for you to get paid the full amount that your injuries are actually worth!

Our aggressive North Tampa drowsy driving accident lawyers will take the time to listen to your story, answer your questions, explain your options, set realistic expectations, gather evidence and pertinent documentation, and even connect you with quality medical care or financial aid if needed. We’ll negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, but if a fair settlement can’t be reached, our talented legal team isn’t afraid to go to trial in order to get justice and substantial compensation for you.

Why North Tampa?

North Tampa is a risky place for drowsy driving. Between all of the commuter students who stay up late studying and drive to and from the University of South Florida, to drivers who are coming home from work and sitting in traffic falling asleep, to all of the exhausted Busch Gardens goers who are going back to their homes or hotels after a long day in the parks, the likelihood of a fatigued driver injuring you or someone you love in this area in a crash is high. We first opened a Tampa office in 1984, and have since expanded to North Tampa and beyond in order to make our representation more accessible to injured accident victims. If you’ve been injured, call The Florida Law Group’s North Tampa drowsy driving accident lawyers today to schedule your free consultation!
