Fatigued and Asleep at the Wheel Accidents

Car Accident Lawyers Serving Illinois

Drivers need to be alert at all times on the road. Even taking your eyes off the road for a few seconds can be catastrophic. The result is often a car accident that results in serious injuries or even fatalities.

One of the most common – and most serious – causes of car accidents we regularly deal with in Illinois involves tired drivers who fall asleep at the wheel and crash into other vehicles. These accidents can be especially serious since the driver often doesn’t slow down before the crash.
