Experience And Results Are What Matter

New Year's Eve And Drunk Driving

Lots of people in the Charlotte, North Carolina area like to go out and celebrate New Year's Eve. It's a night to get together with friends and family and celebrate the beginning of a new year. But it can also be a deadly night when people drink too much and decide to drive. Drinking and driving can result in serious car accidents.

New Year's Eve is one of the deadliest nights of the year on North Carolina roadways. Many times people attend parties, drink too much alcohol, and then make the terrible decision to drive. In 2015, 233 people died in alcohol related crashes in North Carolina. The number of deaths appear to be going down in 2016, but any death due to another person's negligence is tragic. This New Year's Eve, troopers will be out in full force to track down anyone who is suspected of driving drunk, but they can't catch everyone.

The loss of a loved one in a drunk driving accident is a horror that no one should ever have to go through. These are completely preventable accidents that only happen because one person makes a bad decision. When a loved one has been injured or killed in a drunk driving accident, a legal professional skilled in personal injury can help. An attorney has the expertise to figure out what happened to cause the accident and hold the negligent party responsible. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.

This New Year's Eve, Charlotte residents should make the decision not to drive after they have been drinking. But if a person is affected by a drunk driver, they have the legal right to hold them responsible.
