With Daylight Savings Time ending on November 6th this year, your normally sunny evening commute will soon be happening after the sun has set. According to the National Safety Council, driving at night is much more dangerous than driving at any other time during the day, putting those of us who drive home at night of an increased risk of involvement in an accident. Fortunately, in many cases, people who are injured in nighttime traffic accidents are entitled to significant financial compensation for the losses they sustain.

What Causes Nighttime Auto Accidents?

  • There are many reasons that driving at night is more dangerous that driving during the day, including the following:
  • There are more impaired drivers on the road at night
  • Less light makes it harder to see hazards and the road ahead
  • Older drivers often have compromised night vision
  • Rush hour traffic can result in congested roadways and drivers who are impatient to get home

Drivers who are on the road at night are often fatigued

Whether you will be able to recover compensation after a nighttime accident depends on whether your accident was caused by another person’s negligence. Examples of driver negligence can include speeding, drunk driving, following too closely, failing to use headlights, and poor vehicle maintenance. After an accident, the best way to find out whether you have a legal claim is to have your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney. Fortunately, there is no cost associated with having one of our lawyers review your case and we will not collect any legal fees unless we recover compensation for your losses.
