The holidays are meant to be a time of joy and happiness, but for some families, the holidays can turn tragic due to a car accident. The fact is, car accidents can happen to anyone at any time, but during the holidays, there are a number of factors that can cause a spike in traffic accidents.
Alcohol Can Kill
During the holidays, many people get together with friends and family to celebrate, and this often means plenty of alcohol will be flowing. Unfortunately, while most people are responsible when out drinking, some are not. These irresponsible people then get behind the wheel and drive drunk, leading to accidents, injuries and even fatalities.
The holidays also often mean having friends and family in town from out of state, and because these people may not be familiar with your area, they might be distracted behind the wheel. This can then lead to accidents as unfamiliar drivers attempt to navigate in your town.
The Cost of Holiday Car Accidents
People who end up involved in car accidents often face a variety of challenges in terms of finances and suffering. As mentioned, car accidents often lead to injuries, and these injuries can come not only with a great deal of physical, mental and emotional suffering, but also with a large amount of medical costs. In fact, even minor car accidents that involve injuries can cost injured victims tens of thousands of dollars, and these costs only increase with the severity of the accident.
