Suffering exhaustion while driving reduces the driver's ability to recognize potentially dangerous situations and the ability to react appropriately in order to avoid a collision. In fact, it is not uncommon for drivers in such a state to fall asleep and cause truck accidents without even being aware of surrounding traffic at the time of the collision.

The reality is that medical negligence by any part of the medical team may lead to the death of a patient.
