Asleep at the Wheel Accidents

Our attorneys work tirelessly for you

Drivers need to be alert at all times on the road. Unfortunately, some drivers don't take a break and end up falling asleep at the wheel. The result: serious car accidents that often result in severe injuries or fatalities.

Knowing what to do if you or a loved one was injured in a car accident in Northern California caused by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are might not be clear.

That's why it's critical that you talk to a lawyer at Clancy & Diaz, LLP of Walnut Creek as soon as possible. One of our experienced East Bay car accident attorneys can explain all your available legal options and which one makes the most sense for your particular case.

Why these accidents are so serious

Asleep at the wheel accidents often turn out to be more serious than many other accidents. That's because the drivers have no idea they're about to hit another vehicle. As a result, these accidents often involve high speeds when the driver doesn't try to slow down before crashing into another car. Moreover, drivers who fall asleep at the wheel often drift into the oncoming lane and cause devastating head-on collisions.

Many drivers who cause these crashes often deny being asleep at the wheel. But there are often telltale signs that a sleeping driver caused the crash. In particular, there are often no skid marks on the road since the sleeping driving never tried to stop or slow down. That's why you need a lawyer who knows how to find this evidence to build a strong legal case.

How we can help you

Our attorneys leave no stone unturned in pursuit of justice after an asleep at the wheel car accident in Northern California. We visit the crash site. We analyze accident reports. We frequently consult with accident reconstruction experts.

Armed with all this evidence, we then approach the sleeping driver's insurance company and negotiate the best possible settlement. And if the insurance company refuses to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court and file a lawsuit on your behalf.

Remember, you didn't do anything wrong. You shouldn't have to pay for a sleeping driver's refusal to stop driving and take a rest break. Our law firm will do everything it can to hold the driver accountable for his or her actions. Contact us right now and schedule your free case evaluation today.
