Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
The Atlanta personal injury attorneys of Webb, Wade & Taylor LLC are prepared to help individuals who have been injured in an accident with an intoxicated driver during the holiday season. During the holiday season, as friends and family meet at parties and other social gatherings, the consumption of alcohol is a common occurrence. The vast majority of those who choose to drink at these occasions do so responsibly. Unfortunately, however, some individuals act irresponsibly and decide to get behind the wheel after becoming intoxicated. This poses a significant threat to the health and safety of others on the road during the holiday season.
A long-term study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that the number of car accidents caused by intoxicated drivers increases significantly during the holiday season. Between 2001 and 2005, traffic fatalities involving intoxicated drivers increased approximately 25% during the Christmas holiday period and 50% during the New Year’s holiday. Overall, an average of around 1,200 fatal accidents are caused by intoxicated drivers each holiday season, and the Centers for Disease Control estimate that another 25,000 Americans will be injured in these types of accidents over the same period.
Injuries resulting from accidents involving a drunk driver are often considerably serious. In many cases, they may require the individual to pursue costly medical care, and they can also lead to a loss of income from time spent recovering from the injury. Those who experience these unfortunate consequences as the result of someone else’s reckless and irresponsible choice shouldn’t have to deal with the situation by themselves. The Atlanta car accident lawyers of Webb, Wade & Taylor, LLC are prepared to offer their services to all Atlanta residents who are injured by a drunk driver over the holiday season.
