As a consequence, my drive to work was stressful.  I was agitated and have to admit that my concentration was somewhat distracted. Other than when I was a child, fortunately I have never been involved in a serious accident, whether as a result of my fault or someone else's. 

It made me think.  What if my being tired and in a rush had caused an accident?  I am happy to say that it didn't....

Every working day I represent people who have been injured in accidents whether on the road, at work or in public places.  Unfortunately accidents do happen and often no one is at fault.  But where there is fault, I seek compensation for claimants who have suffered injuries ranging from the minor to life changing.  In addition, there may be other losses - they may have lost their job as a result of the accident, or incurred travel costs to and from treatment, to name but two.  The consequences can be endless.

It is a fact of life that when we are tired we take more risks.  We do not operate at full capacity.  Often it is difficult even to think straight.  As a result, we are more likely to do something daft or, conversely, be alert to a potential danger.  Either can have catastrophic results.

It became clear to me as I sat at my desk.  Firstly, I must get more sleep!  Secondly, it is never worth putting yourself or someone else at risk.  As the saying goes, better late than never.
