Are you planning on attending a Super Bowl Party this weekend? Plan also to stay sober or arrange for a ride home. Hosting a party? Take steps, like key collection, to prevent your guests from driving home intoxicated. These steps can help keep you and those you care about from causing an accident and ruining lives.
There are over 20% more instances of drunk driving on Super Bowl Sunday than on any other Sunday of the year. Motor vehicle accidents involving intoxicated drivers increases that day as well and, along with them, instances of severe, catastrophic, and fatal injury. Staying sober helps to ensure you do not cause one of these accidents. It can also help to keep you sharp, allowing you to maneuver around intoxicated drivers and avoid accidents they’re causing as well.
Common Drunk Driving Accident Injuries
Some of the most common injuries incurred in drunk driving accidents include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Broken Bones
- Internal Organ Damage
Death is also a common consequence of these accidents, particularly where speed is involved. This makes extra caution on highways all the more important.
When you are injured or a loved one is killed by a drunk driver, there may be legal options available that allow you to seek compensation for any related damages. This may include money for hospital bills and lost wages along with compensation for property damage and all other provable damages. Through legal action, you may also be able to seek compensation for pain and suffering – both physical and mental – which tend to accompany recovery from these types of accidents.
