Long hours on the set can lead to drowsy driving

On Behalf of | Feb 5, 2018 | Car Accidents |

The #MeToo movement has opened a dialogue throughout the country. The movement has resulted in more than an opportunity for victims to share stories of sexual assault. It has also led others in Hollywood to feel emboldened enough to voice concerns about working conditions.

One example: dangerous hours.

Certain careers come with long hours. Physicians are one example. In addition to having to work at all hours of the day, many of these professionals will work long, grueling shifts.

Doctors are not alone. Actors and crew members are voicing concern over the danger that come with their hours. These dangers were recently highlighted when an actor crashed into a lamp post. He blamed a 14-hour work day for the accident. The actor did not suffer any serious injuries and, thankfully, only hit a pole. If he had hit another vehicle the story may have been much more tragic.

What if it was worse? What if he had hit another car? Funds may be present for victims of drowsy driving accidents through a personal injury lawsuit. This option is present in the event the accident was the result of another driver’s negligent or reckless operation of a vehicle. In many cases, operating a vehicle while drowsy would qualify.

It is wise to seek legal counsel if you believe you are the victim of a drowsy driving accident. An attorney experienced in car accident claims can review the details of the accident and provide guidance on a claim, better ensuring a successful case.
