Holidays are a time for positive experiences and parties, but they can also be a time which car accidents increase. Weather conditions in the winter begin to worsen, and when the holidays start, people are more distracted. At parties, people may get intoxicated before getting behind the wheel.
The holidays and parties go side-by-side throughout this season, which can lead to festivities but also more drunk drivers. As employees linger at office parties a few drinks too long, or a happy hour turns into many hours. Drunk drivers hit the road and cause accidents during the holiday season. If you have been in an accident with a drunk driver, you are entitled to compensation for your damages.
When an individual makes the decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, they are breaking the law. People in this situation will be liable for any damages and injuries their poor decision resulted in. Have an experienced attorney on your side to negotiate with the opposing party and their insurance company. Lawyers will make the most of your damages and take the stress of negotiations out of your day-to-day life.
When a driver is engaging in an activity that is against the rules of the road, and they cause an accident, they are likely liable for the damages caused by the accident. One of the most common causes of accidents on the road during the holiday is distracted driving. Distracted driving is engaging in any activity while driving that takes your attention away from the road. This can include texting, fiddling with the entertainment system or in-dash screen, using a cell phone or smartphone to text or talk, and even eating and drinking.
Knowing what the other driver was doing in your accident can be difficult, if not impossible, for you to determine, as you cannot see inside their vehicle and you were busy driving safely and paying attention to the road at the time of the accident. Your car accident attorney knows what evidence to collect, how to best support your case, and how to collect as much compensation for your damages as possible.
Being in a car accident can put the brakes on your life, both personally and professionally, and when another driver was at fault for the accident, you are entitled to damages.
