Preventing car accidents during the holiday season

As Maryland readers know, the holiday season means there are more people on the roads than during other times of the year. As a result, the chance of car accidents also increases as drivers engage in dangerous behaviors such as drunk, drugged or distracted driving. In order to bring awareness to this problem and hopefully encourage drivers to make smart choices, December is now National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month. 

One of the main reasons for increased car accidents during this time of year is an increase of drunk driving. When going to holiday parties, drivers should think ahead to whether or not alcohol will be served and how they will get home. Hosts should also provide non-alcoholic drinks for those who need to drive, and they should also refuse to allow inebriated guests to leave and get behind the wheel of the car. Calling for a cab or using services like Uber or Lyft are also smart choices after drinking.

Another source of holiday car accidents is an increase of distracted driving. Drivers can protect themselves by not only making safe driving choices, but also by being aware of other drivers on the road. Awareness and vigilance can save lives.

If a Maryland driver suffers injuries because of a drunk or distracted driver, he or she has the right to seek financial compensation through a personal injury claim. Car accidents can leave a victim and family suffering from physical complications and financial loss, but they do not have to walk through the aftermath alone. An evaluation of the case can reveal what legal options may be available.
