The holiday season is here. For most families, it’s a time of gratitude and togetherness. But for some, it can be tragic. That’s because the dangers associated with drunk driving spike around this time of year.
Many people travel to holiday parties hosted by their workplaces, friends, or families, and they’re more likely to get behind the wheel after drinking than at any other time of year. That means that driving between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day can be particularly risky, especially when you drive at night when there’s less daylight and more intoxicated drivers on the road.
At Ponce Law, we don’t let drunk drivers off the hook when they cause accidents that injure our clients. Driving while intoxicated is one of the most extreme examples of negligence and recklessness that any licensed driver can exhibit.
There’s no excuse to drive drunk, especially with such an abundance of rideshare services, taxi services, and even public transportation services revelers can use to get home if they have a few too many at a holiday party. Because of those lack of excuses, we believe that drunk drivers should be held fully accountable when they injure others.
If you or someone you love was hurt by a drunk driver this holiday season or any other time of year, the Nashville auto accident lawyers at Ponce Law are here to help. We’ll prove the driver was intoxicated when they hit you, and we’ll work hard to get you full compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
