With the holiday season upon us, many people in North Carolina and across the country will be driving to spend time with family and friends. In the upcoming weeks, people may be driving long distances, spending hours on the road. Hardee, Massey & Blodgett knows that more people driving long distances, means there is an increased chance of sustaining an injury in a car accident and possibly suffering serious consequences as a result of a motor vehicle wreck.
It is imperative that you stay safe if you plan to drive during the holidays, because unfortunately, many people are involved in accidents during holiday road trips. These types of accidents occur for many reasons, but speeding, driver fatigue and drinking and driving play a role in a large number of wrecks.
Even if a driver is fully responsible while they are on the road, they risk being involved in an accident due to the negligence of other drivers. During long road trips, the chances of being involved in an accident increases because you are simply spending more time behind the wheel of your car. And sadly, wrecks during the holidays often involve multiple family members, which makes the motor vehicle accidents more devastating and even harder for a family to recover from.
These types of accidents can shatter holiday memories by causing serious injuries or claiming the life of a loved one. Too many people suffer because of holiday accidents. If you or a family member is involved in a car crash caused by another driver’s carelessness, you need to contact a personal injury attorney and take appropriate action to ensure you are compensated for your injuries.
