Influenza and the risk of an accident

People cause accidents on roads across the country for an array of reasons. Sometimes, these accidents were entirely preventable and only occurred because of a poor decision to drive drunk or exceed the speed limit. In Bowling Green, and other parts of Kentucky, these accidents can happen for reasons that are not always given as much attention, but our law firm knows that crashes have the potential to claim lives or leave victims with debilitating injuries regardless of the cause. With influenza season approaching, it is important to be mindful of the different ways that the seasonal flu could lead to traffic collisions.

When someone comes down with the flu, they may have a harder time falling asleep at night and may find that their quality of sleep has decreased. Unfortunately, this can cause them to suffer from fatigue, which has been proven to cause accidents. At the same time, headaches, fevers, and other flu symptoms may also contribute to a collision. Furthermore, it must be pointed out that those with the flu often take medications that can cause them to become drowsy, another proven hazard.

If you or a family member you love have been struck by another driver, you could be going through various difficulties, regardless of the reason why the driver caused the crash. During this tough time, it is vital to know your rights and recover. If you go over to our auto accidents section, you will have the ability to peruse more material on motor vehicle wrecks.
