From Thanksgiving through the start of 2017, many Charlotte residents find themselves attending a plethora of holiday parties through their professional and personal associations. Often, these events are designed to allow individuals to relax and have fun with the people they enjoy. Many involve the serving of food and alcohol to the attending guests.
While most people are able to moderate their intake of spirits and make good decisions about how to get themselves home after celebrating, some individuals attempt to drive themselves home after indulging in alcohol. Drinking and driving is a dangerous situation as it leaves innocent individuals subject to the hazardous and unpredictable tendencies of intoxicated drivers.
Drunk drivers can have slowed reflexes and impaired cognitive functions that prevent them from avoiding collisions with other vehicles. When a drunk driver crashes into another vehicle, the impact can leave the victims with serious injuries, extensive personal and financial damages and sometimes even death.
A drunk driving accident during the holidays can forever change the way a victim lives his life and interacts with those that he loves. It can leave him with burdensome medical bills, the inability to return to his job and other consequences that can directly affect his ability to support himself and his family.
After a drunk driving accident, it may seem as though there is nothing a victim can do to put his life back on track. In situations like this though, a victim may have the right to pursue litigation against the responsible drunk driver for the recovery of the losses he suffered in the accident. Preparing a pleading based on the facts of a drunk driving accident, can be complicated, but the Daisley Law Offices, located in Charlotte, are available to help injured parties pursue the compensation they deserve.
