Asleep At The Wheel Accidents
Our Ohio attorneys fight for injury victims
Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel wreak havoc on our roads. In an instant, a tired driver can crash into another vehicle and cause a serious car accident with severe injuries. And because the driver was asleep, such accidents often involve high speeds since the sleeping driver didn’t slow down before the crash.

You have rights
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if a driver falls asleep at the wheel and crashes into your car. All you have to do is call the police and your insurance company and they will take care of everything.
Unfortunately, most asleep at the wheel accidents aren’t so straightforward. Many drivers deny falling asleep. They might even try to claim you did something to cause your crash. And then there are the insurance companies. They often do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim altogether.
That’s not right. If someone caused your crash, they should be held responsible for their actions. That’s why we take such cases so seriously at our law firm. It’s not about the money. It’s about justice. Make my team your team. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation.
