Fatigued Drivers Cause Accidents that Harm Others
The National Safety Council (NSC) states that when drivers operate a vehicle while drowsy, they are impaired. Fatigued drivers endanger lives as much as drunk drivers.
Research from the NSC shows that:
- Fatigued drivers are three times more likely than the average driver to be in a car accident
- Having a lack of sleep for 20+ hours is the same as being legally intoxicated
- Two hours of lost sleep impairs driving and is the same as if the driver had consumed three beers
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports more statistics about the seriousness of fatigued (drowsy) driving.
- In 2017, there were 795 fatalities due to fatigued (drowsy) driving and 91,000 crashes.
- 4,111 people were killed in crashes involving fatigued driving between 2013 and 2017.

You do Not Pay Unless You Win Your Case
Since our firm works on a contingency-fee-basis, we don’t collect any money upfront for taking on your case. You have nothing to lose by calling for a free case review, and there is no obligation on your part to hire us. If we represent you and win, only then will we collect our attorneys’ fees.
The fees you pay are agreed upon in a signed contract based on a percentage of the judgment or settlement of your case. With us, you will not have to guess what happens next. We will work together with you and keep you updated throughout the process.
If we are unable to reach a fair settlement with the other driver’s insurance company, it may be possible to file a lawsuit and we can represent you in court.
You May Have a Limited Time to Take Action
You only have up to a year from the accident date to file a claim, according to Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §3492. If you wait a few weeks or months from now, that may delay your chances of receiving the amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.
A year may seem like a long time, but gathering evidence and preparing a case is time-consuming. The more time your attorney has to prepare your case, the better. Do not delay filing a claim.
You should concentrate on your health and recovering from your injuries while your attorney takes care of the legal work. We can get started on your case right away.
