Experience And Results Are What Matter

St. Patrick's Day celebrations can lead to drunk driving accidents

For many, St. Patrick's Day is a time for celebration, regardless of whether an individual has Irish ancestry or is just Irish for the day. In fact, more than 33 million people celebrate the holiday with food, drink and merriment each year. As the fourth most popular drinking days, behind New Year's Eve, Christmas and Independence Day, St. Patrick's Day also creates more risk for drunk driving accidents.

In North Carolina and throughout the United States, people drink too much at St. Patrick's Day celebrations and then unfortunately decide to drive drunk. All too often, this decision results in serious or fatal car accidents. In fact, fatal alcohol-related accidents on St. Patrick's Day occur in the U.S. every 74 minutes. Among those accidents, 75 percent involve an individual who has consumed twice the legal limit.

One person's error in judgment can result in a life-changing tragedy for many. The tragic loss of a loved one that results from a preventable accident is someone no one should have to experience. Even if injuries sustained in an accident aren't fatal, they can be serious enough to warrant lifelong care.

When a loved one is killed or injured in a drunk driving accident, an experienced personal injury attorney can provide much-needed legal assistance. A skilled lawyer will be able to help determine what caused the accident and hold negligent parties accountable for their actions. Through a legal claim, compensation can be obtained for medical bills, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
