Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

How Sleep Deprivation Affects Employees

sleep deprived employee accident lawyer new orleans

As adults, we lead busy lives. Often times, we find that our sleep schedules are not as long as we would like. According to physicians, the average sleep time needed for an adult is 7 to 8 hours to be able to function at full capacity. Unfortunately, most adults are unable to reach this amount of sleep each night due to the every increasing busyness of life. The problems associated with sleep deficiency are often disregarded because the results are not very obvious. It can be difficult to identify sleep-loss as a cause of a work-related incident, despite sleep concerns being a factor involved in workplace accidents.

Declined Cognition and Motor Skills are Associated with Sleep Deprivation

When an employee is sleep deprived, they are unable to work effectively and safely. Communication can be greatly affected with co-workers and bosses and more importantly the ability to operate machinery safely declines. Lack of sleep can cause an individual to speak lower as well as mumble or mispronounce words. When communication is key, sleep deprivation can lead to misunderstandings with associates, including accidents that can possibly cause harm.

Employees who are tired all the time will see a decline in their performance and be prone to distraction. When employees work in a dangerous environment, this can lead to bad accidents. Driving impairment is a huge factor when an employee is operating on little sleep. An employee should never get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle or piece of machinery when they are exhausted due to sleep deprivation.

A drowsy driver can cause an accident in the workplace or on the roadways. Workers who operate machinery such as forklifts are at a high risk of being involved in an accident when sleepy. Sleep deprivation can lead to slow reaction times, similar to reaction times of a drunk driver. At Cueria Law Firm, we specialize in recognizing when sleep deprivation may be at play when an accident occurs at the workplace or on the roadways. We can help you file a personal injury claim based on the negligence act of someone who was too sleep deprived to do their job correctly.

Sleep Deprivation Will  Eventually Lead to an Accident

Just one night without adequate sleep can lead to declined brain function for several days or possibly even weeks. It is not common for employees to stay up all night and then come to work, but it is common for an employee to have a rough few nights of sleep and be tired on the job. Cognitive abilities and motor skills can be affected which can lead to accidents within the workplace when an individual has not gotten the sleep they need.

If you or someone you love has been injured on the job due to a sleep deprived individual who caused the accident, contact our New Orleans Law Office. Our New Orleans personal injury attorneys are ready to review your case and come up with an appropriate solution to see you and your family receive just compensation.
