Reliable Asleep at the Wheel Accident Attorney in Fort Worth
Were you injured by a driver who seemed tired or fell asleep at the wheel? These types of car accidents are becoming increasingly common in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and they can have devastating consequences. You have legal rights, and Fort Worth car accident attorney Coby L. Wooten can help you recover compensation for your crash.
We understand how to handle difficult cases
Accidents involving asleep at the wheel drivers frequently cause severe injuries. In part, that’s because sleeping drivers often don’t hit the brakes before impact, meaning the crash happens at full speed. Fatigued drivers may also drift into the oncoming lane, causing a devastating head-on collision. But even lower-impact crashes like rear-end collisions can still cause significant injuries.
You might expect your case to be easily resolved, but dealing with an insurance company is rarely easy. The tired driver may deny falling asleep at the wheel. Their insurance company may try to put the blame on you for the accident. They may downplay the extent of your injuries or offer a “lowball” settlement that doesn’t come close to the full value of your crash.
We know how to cut through the confusion and find out what really happened. We thoroughly investigate cases involving asleep at the wheel drivers:
- We investigate the accident scene itself. Often, there are no skid marks because the tired driver didn’t hit the brakes.
- We review the tired driver’s statements for evidence that he or she may not remember the crash itself due to falling asleep.
- We interview witnesses, both those who saw the crash itself and others who may have seen the driver earlier and could testify that he or she appeared tired.
- We review the police accident report and any other evidence looking for clues.
With this evidence in hand, we will go to work to build a strong case for the full and fair compensation you deserve. In most cases, we’re able to reach a fair settlement with the tired driver’s insurance company. If not, we will take your case to trial.
