Motion sickness and car crashes

On Behalf of | Dec 21, 2018 | blog

Sometimes, people experience motion sickness while they are behind the wheel. This can be especially problematic for those who spend a long amount of time in the car, or those who find themselves making many turns or driving around sharp corners. When some people are not feeling well, their driving abilities may be affected in various ways. Aside from feeling nauseous and even vomiting, some drivers may be more likely to cause a motor vehicle collision. On the road, you should be mindful of these issues if you experience motion sickness, feel dizzy or have any other problem that could impact your ability to operate your vehicle.

However, some drivers disregard these concerns and drive anyway. Whether someone has to get to work at a certain time or they simply do not want to take the time to pull off the road, some people push through and drive even though they are not feeling well. If you were struck by someone who may have had motion sickness, this can be difficult to determine. But if another driver causes a crash and they say that they were not feeling well at the time of the accident, you should take note of this as it may be important to bring up in court.

Aside from motion sickness, drivers may not feel well for many other reasons and this can also lead to an accident. Flu season, for example, is one reason why many people suffer from symptoms that interfere with their driving abilities.
