Allergy season and the risk of an accident

In many parts of the country, people struggle with allergies due to pollen during September, especially ragweed pollen. Allergies can make daily life very difficult, causing someone to have terrible headaches, a runny nose and constant sneezing. While these challenges may not seem very serious, especially since they are temporary and eventually pass when pollen levels go down, they can make life incredibly hard. Unfortunately, those with severe allergies may be more likely to cause a collision for different reasons.

So, how can seasonal allergies lead to a motor vehicle wreck? For starters, allergy sufferers may suffer from fatigue while driving, due to not getting enough sleep at night because their allergies kept them up. Moreover, some drivers may be drowsy after taking medication to help with their symptoms. Aside from this, a driver may become distracted by their allergies due to sneezing, reaching for a tissue or rubbing their eyes. Clearly, there are a number of reasons why allergies can be dangerous when it comes to road safety.

If you were hit by someone, it may be hard to prove that they caused the accident because of their allergies. However, it is crucial to look over all of the accident details, especially if you plan on taking your case to the courtroom. Regardless of the cause, these accidents can be devastating and cause an overwhelming amount of suffering. From a broken bone to financial problems brought on by missing work and mental trauma, motor vehicle crashes can shatter the lives of victims in many ways.
