I was injured in a car accident on the 405 freeway. The other driver admitted to falling asleep behind the wheel. Can I recover compensation for my injuries?

You may be able to recover compensation, but it is imperative that you talk with an experienced Santa Monica car accident attorney right away. Don’t sign anything sent to you by the insurance company or agree to give a recorded statement before talking with a lawyer.

Drowsy driving is a major hazard and has been known to lead to serious car accidents.  Unfortunately, many people get behind the wheel when they are extremely tired.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 37 percent of drivers surveyed in one of its studies admitted to falling asleep behind the wheel.  What was even more alarming is that 60 percent said that they have fallen asleep while driving on an interstate-type road.
