Driving at Night
Driving at night presents certain dangers that are not usually present during the day, such as limited visibility and the risk of falling asleep at the wheel. It is important to always drive safely and attentively when driving at night, but even when you take your best measures to prevent an accident, you may be struck by a negligent motorist. When this happens, you may be able to seek financial compensation for car repair bills and any medical bills that accumulate.

Tips for Driving Safely at Night
Driving at night can dramatically reduce your reaction time, so there are certain tips to always keep in mind when driving at night in order to reduce your likelihood of getting into an accident. These include:
- Turn your lights on as soon as it begins to get dark
- Increase your following distance between vehicles
- Decrease your speed
- Keep mirrors and windshields clean
- If you or on a long road trip, be sure to take consistent breaks in order to rest and avoid becoming too fatigued
Unfortunately, despite many drivers’ best efforts to drive safely at night, there are many other drivers who do not drive safely at night, and they may be the ones responsible for your accident. If this has happened to you, financial compensation may be available.
Do not delay seeking legal advice from a skilled and committed attorney if you have been hurt in a car accident caused by another motorist’s failure to adapt to the demands of nighttime driving. Contact the Milwaukee reckless driving lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
