Traffic is usually bad enough any day of the year in Southern California. Though, driving during the holidays means you will see more people on the road, rushing around, and not paying attention. Plus, cold and rainy weather after late-night holiday parties also doesn’t help.
As we finally put a close to the rollercoaster that is 2020, don’t let a car crash be another part of this year. While we may assume people are staying home to avoid COVID-19, we will likely see more people on the roads to visit family and friends they have not seen for a while.
Top Cause of Accidents During the Holidays
One of the most common causes of car accidents this time of year is drunk driving. Impaired drivers may be individuals who have spent all day drinking or someone who’s decided to get behind the wheel after just a few drinks. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that those between the ages of 21 and 24 tend to have the highest level of involvement in alcohol-related accidents. At Gokal Law, we highly suggest designating a sober driver before attending parties or events that involve any type of travel.
If You’re in an Accident
If you’ve been in an accident, first make sure to call 911 and get medical treatment immediately. Once all injuries have been addressed by a medical professional, it may be in your best interest to reach out to an experienced attorney. An attorney fights to obtain justice for victims of people who choose to drink, text, or disobey the safety rules of the road. They ensure that reckless drivers take responsibility for the hurt they cause innocent men, women, and children.
At Gokal Law Group, Inc., we will diligently investigate the accident scene, interview witnesses, and preserve key evidence to win your case. The sooner you contact us, the more effective we are at gathering and preserving the necessary evidence before it disappears for good.
