Sleep Apnea as a Factor in Car Accidents

Can Sleep Apnea Cause Car Accidents?

Yes, sleep apnea has been known to be a factor in many Atlanta auto accidents and crashes throughout this nation. Because sleep apnea is a breathing disorder that affects sleep, victims of sleep apnea are affected by excessive daytime sleepiness. When a person is affected by sleep apnea, he or she may black out for a few seconds, which is called "micro-sleep."

When this happens behind the wheel, the person affected by sleep apnea and all motorists sharing the road with that person can suffer the consequences. Many studies have found that patients with sleep apnea are at an increased risk of being involved in a serious car accident involving injury.

If you were a passenger in a car or the driver of another car that was injured by someone driving with sleep apnea, you may have rights to recovery.

If you have been injured in an Atlanta car accident due to another's negligence, please call The Kalka Law Group to speak with an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer and to schedule your free legal consultation today.
