Pollen and the risk of an accident

On Behalf of | Feb 26, 2018 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Motor vehicle crashes happen for all sorts of reasons, including excessive speeds, the use of alcohol, and ignoring other traffic safety laws. However, other less common risk factors may also lead to a crash, such as seasonal allergies. For some people, the idea of allergies causing a motor vehicle accident may sound farfetched, but for those who struggle with severe seasonal allergies, the dangers may be very clear. Unfortunately, crashes turn lives upside down regardless of the cause or a driver’s intentions. Worse, it can be hard to pinpoint allergies as the cause of an accident, but victims deserve justice nonetheless.

Seasonal allergies can flare up at certain times of year and may be responsible for an accident in many different ways. For example, someone may sneeze while operating a vehicle, causing them to take their eyes off the road or veer into oncoming traffic. Moreover, itchy eyes may have the same effect and can be a serious concern for those with extremely bad allergies. In fact, some people might become drowsy due to the consumption of allergy medication. Drowsy driving is another serious concern that leads to many serious crashes each year and drivers do not always pay proper attention to the medications they consume and the impact it may have on their ability to drive.

If your life was shattered by someone who was drowsy, distracted by allergies, or any other cause, you deserve a voice. Browse to our firm’s accident section to view more on auto crash injuries.
