Holidays and Car Accident Statistics

It is probably no surprise that the number of car accidents, especially those involving drugs or alcohol, increase over the holiday season. This is true not only with the end of the year holidays, but with holidays such as the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving and more. According to statistics for the state of Michigan, there was an average of more than 2 car accident fatalities per day in 2011, with 0.75 per day attributed to driving under the influence (DUI). If you single out the holiday periods, those figures increase to an average of 3 fatalities per day, with 1.16 as a result of DUI accidents. On Christmas Day 2011, Michigan saw 8 fatal car accidents, 4 of which were alcohol-related. Eight people died as a result of those accidents. On New Year's Day there were 13 fatal car accidents resulting in 14 total fatalities. Five of those New Year's accidents were alcohol-related.

No matter what time of year it is, car accidents are capable of causing broken bones, lacerations, head and neck injuries, not to mention other life-threatening injuries. Sadly, a car accident can cause a wrongful death, leaving families struggling with unimaginable shock and grief. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident due to no fault of your own, I strongly recommend you consult with a Detroit car accident attorney at my firm as soon as possible. Waiting to hire a skilled attorney may have a negative impact on your case. When you contact my firm, I will thoroughly review your case, answer any questions you may have, analyze the accident reports and witness statements, do further investigation as needed, and advise you on the best course of action to pursue. Having helped many clients receive sizable, even seven-figure, compensation settlements, my goal is to help you receive the compensation you rightfully deserve.
