San Diego, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 05, 2011
The San Diego DUI accident lawyers at the law firm of Mitchell | Gilleon (whose URL can be found at http://www.mglawyers.com) would like to take this opportunity to warn people in the area in regards to the potential dangers of drinking and driving on Super Bowl Sunday. Super Bowl Sunday is the day where the second-most alcohol-related accidents occur in the United States over the course of the year.
There are certain precautions that can be taken to minimize the dangers involved as well as certain legal rights and options that arise if someone is injured in a San Diego car accident by a drunk driver.
In regards to legal rights and options subsequent to a San Diego DUI accident, those who have been harmed by a drunk driver can and often do file a California personal injury lawsuit in response to the incident. If such a lawsuit is filed and is successful, those who have been harmed can recover damages that compensate them for their medical costs, their lost income and their pain and suffering.
In terms of minimizing the risks associated with drinking and driving, those who are leaving home for the day should take the proper precautions, including:
- Designating a driver for the day who promises not to consume alcohol
- Bringing non-alcoholic beverages along for the driver to drink
- Bringing phone numbers to at least two local taxi cab companies
- Bringing supplies for staying the night if driving home is not advisable
- Being prepared to take the keys from a designated driver who has been drinking
The San Diego DUI accident lawyers at Mitchell | Gilleon would like to wish everyone a safe and festive Super Bowl Sunday.
