Fatigued driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving

A nurse who suffers various health problems, including regular headaches explained the cause of her medical problems. She says, some years ago, after working all night on an overnight shift, she got in her car and proceeded to drive home. She remembers feeling tired and considering a quick stop to buy something like coffee or soda to wake her up. However, she was so close to her home that she decided not to stop.

Everyone knows that it is dangerous and illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol. Most people also know that you can sue a drunk driver who causes an accident. But did you know that you might also be able to recover damages from the bar that served them?

New York motorcyclist injured by allegedly drunk driver

Like anyone else on New York roadways, motorcyclists are endangered by drunk drivers. However, because they are so much more exposed to the elements, and because motorcycles are inherently unstable, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable. Any collision between a motorcycle and another vehicle is much more likely to lead to serious injury or death than a crash between two cars.

Car accident leaves three dead; drunk driving may be involved

Car accidents kill and injure many pedestrians and motorists in New York each year. Many of these accidents are, unfortunately, caused by drunk drivers. One driver is under the suspicion of drunk driving after an early morning accident on the highway left two people dead and three people injured. The drunk driver was traveling with three other young people when their car crossed the center line on the highway and collided head-on with another vehicle driven by a 65-year-old oil refinery worker. Two of the passengers in the car that crossed over died, as well as the 65-year-old driver of the other vehicle.
