Things to Remember This Holiday Season

The holidays are a great time for celebrating with family and friends, but remember it is also one of the more dangerous times to be out on the road. The number of deaths and injuries from auto accidents increase during Christmas and New Years.

Some Things to Remember This Holiday Season

Drinking and Driving
Any amount of alcohol can worsen vision, coordination and reaction time when driving. If you are going to a holiday party, prepare ahead of time and get a designated driver or call a taxi to drive you home safely. In Louisiana, you can be charged with a DWI with the following blood alcohol concentrations (BAC); if you are under 21 years old, the BAC when driving is .02%. Those over 21, the blood alcohol concentration is .08% and for commercial drivers, the BAC is .04%. Remember that any drunk driver that causes an accident that kills another person can face up to 20 years in prison. And in civil court, a drunk driver whose intoxication is the cause of injury to a person can face a claim for punitive damages under Louisiana law. Our firm has handled many of these claims for punitive damages.
It is best not to take any chances if you have consumed any amount of alcohol. Be prepared ahead of time and get a designated driver.

Crowded Roads
The roads are extra crowded this time of year so be patient in traffic situations. It is important to keep your eye on the road, don’t speed and buckle up.

Weather Conditions
Inclement weather can lead to dangerous road conditions which can increase your chance of getting into an accident.

Even if you are a responsible driver this holiday season, you may not be able to prevent an auto accident caused by another driver. If you are injured in an accident or have any questions regarding an accident, call The Womac Law Firm for a free consultation with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys.
