Florida Holiday Travel Poses a Heightened Risk of a Car Accident
The winter holiday season is a time for celebration, family, religious observance, shopping, gatherings, increased holiday traffic, and drunk driving. The weeks spanning Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day see a dramatic rise in traffic congestion, as well as an increase in drunk driving. Tragically, this time of year is one of the most fatal times of year for motor vehicle accidents. Approximately twenty percent of U.S. adults plan to travel during the Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa holiday period. A negligent driver could turn a family’s holiday season from joyous to tragic. A Florida auto accident lawyer from our firm can advise you or a family member of your legal right to monetary compensation should you or your loved one sustain an injury in an accident with a reckless, speeding, intoxicated, or otherwise negligent driver.
..."Approximately twenty percent of U.S. adults plan to travel during the Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa holiday period."
Many factors account for the spike in motor vehicle accidents during the holiday season. These include the following:
Drunk Drivers: Alcohol plays a substantial role in holiday celebrations. Consuming a little alcohol impacts a person’s driving abilities. Consuming several alcoholic drinks impairs vision, judgment, coordination, and reaction time. Diminished driving abilities typically lead to a tragic motor vehicle accident.
Fatigued/Drowsy Driving: The holidays also mean driving long distances to visit friends and family. Drivers who have been driving for several hours will begin to feel tired and/or fatigued.
Traffic Congestion: The holiday season is one of the most traveled time periods of the year. Most families choose to travel by car to attend family celebrations, work parties, school holiday events, and more. This leads to vehicles on the road and an increased chance of being in collisions, suffering injuries, or suffering fatal injuries.
If you or a family member have been struck by a negligent driver, an experienced auto accident lawyer from our firm can help you stand up for your legal rights and assist you through the accident insurance claims process.
