The frequency of drunk driving accidents and deaths increases around the holidays and every year innocent families are involved in horrible crashes. Please be cautious and drive carefully this holiday season -- and do not drive after drinking.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
As individuals and families take to the roads this holiday season, they should be aware of an increased risk posed by drunk drivers, said lawyer David Resnick, the principal partner in David Resnick & Associates, P.C. of New York, NY.
“The frequency of drunk driving accidents and deaths increases around the holidays and every year innocent families are involved in horrible crashes,” Mr. Resnick said. “Please be cautious and drive carefully this holiday season -- and do not drive after drinking.”
Federal studies have consistently shown that alcohol-related crashes and deaths are more common in the days surrounding holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. For example, a four-year study by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration indicated that nearly four out of every 10 traffic fatalities in the last two weeks of December involved alcohol.
A drunk driving accident can cause terrible injuries and quickly overwhelm a family’s finances with extensive medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. NY laws provide accident victims with important rights, including the right to seek financial compensation for their injuries, but important steps must be followed to preserve these rights, Resnick said. Consulting a qualified and experienced lawyer is an essential step to protecting your rights and receiving the compensation you deserve, he said.
“An accident during the holidays is always tragic,” Mr. Resnick said. “Following an accident, protecting your future and that of your family requires honest, reliable legal representation.”
