Drowsy Driving Accidents in Pennsylvania
Call Our Personal Injury Law Firm Now
Falling asleep at the wheel leads to hundreds of car accidents every year in Pennsylvania alone. In fact, there are many more drowsy drivers on the road than many people realize. Unfortunately, most drivers don't admit to themselves when they are too fatigued to drive and don’t realize how tired they are until it is too late.
Drowsy driving is a preventable issue and an extremely dangerous threat to other drivers on the road. Drivers who cause accidents because they fell asleep behind the wheel or were too tired to react in time to prevent an accident may be held liable for compensating accident victims.
People who are most likely to drive while fatigued include:
- Late night/early morning shift workers
- Shift workers who work more than 50-60 hours a week
- Long-haul truck drivers
- People with undiagnosed sleep disorders
- Business travelers

Fatigued Driving Accidents: A Preventable Epidemic
According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drowsy or fatigued driving is suspected in as many as one in six fatal car accidents, as well in one out of every eight crashes that results in hospital admissions. Statistics reveal that nodding off while driving – even just briefly – is a regular occurrence. A CDC report indicates that an average of 1 in 25 drivers will fall asleep while driving at some point. Some studies even show that drowsy or sleepy driver can be just as hazardous as drunk or drugged driving.
These accidents are always preventable. Drowsy motorists have the choice to pull over and rest rather than face the risk of getting into an accident. When these drivers choose to drive fatigued, they may not be acting malicious, but they are acting negligent. That means they may be held liable or responsible if they cause an accident.
