Drivers on the road after midnight are more likely to get in fatal crashes

Drivers on the road after midnight are more likely to get in fatal crashes
 

NIGHT TIME DRIVING KILLS more than any other time of the day. It is probably not hard to figure that the most likely time to be involved in a fatal automobile accident is on weekend nights between midnight and 3 o’clock in the morning. Why is that? People on the road at that time of the night have been partying, drinking and are at the very least distracted from what they should be focusing on, operating the vehicle. This leads to the next fact: nearly 4-out-of-10 fatal moving vehicle accidents involve alcohol. We all know that drinking and driving is a no-no, but did you know that any accident involving a drunk driver (if you or a loved one is hit by a drunk driver) may entitle you to file a negligent injury lawsuit.

RECEIVE CONSIDERABLE FINANCIAL COMPENSATION, if you win your personal injury lawsuit, for the injuries suffered due to the negligence of the drunk driver. It’s not just late night drivers or drunk drivers that we need to be concerned about these days: distracted drivers, texting drivers, drivers talking on cell phones, anything that makes a driver less able to control their vehicle and more likely to be involved in one of the thousands of accidents that occur every day in the United States.

EVERY 14 SECONDS someone is injured in a car accident in the United States. That’s more than 4 injuries a minute, more than 240 every hour. Tragically, a fatal car accident happens every 12 minutes. That’s right. Someone loses their life in a deadly car, truck or motorcycle accident 5 times an hour, every hour of the day. Think about how many of those injuries and deaths could have been avoided. Think about the accident you or a loved one was just involved in – was the other party at fault? Should you be contacting a personal injury attorney to see if you have legal rights? Think about next time you’re out on the road and you see someone driving irresponsibly. When another driver on the road cuts you off and makes you want to curse.

32,000 TIMES IN OUR LIVES, WE WILL CURSE while operating a vehicle. 32,000 harsh words directed at the road conditions or at another driver. 32,000 times that we may be involved in a situation that could get worse, that could escalate into a moving vehicle accident, which is why it is so important to know your legal rights.

KNOWING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS is so important it’s worth stating twice. The laws in each state are different regarding moving vehicle accidents. The insurance companies—both yours and the party who may have hit you—are looking out for number one; the insurance company, not you. Knowing what your legal rights are is a complicated issue and is why it is so critically important o contact a qualified car accident law firm with a proven track record protecting clients and making sure that all legal options and possibilities are explored and exhausted. Initial consultations are confidential. Initial consultations are free. Take five minutes, know your rights. Protect yourself and your loved ones.
