The Holidays and Drunk Driving

As winter approaches and holiday gatherings increase, the roads become more perilous due to weather conditions and a higher likelihood of drinking and driving. Philpot Law Firm notes a regrettable surge each year in accidents caused by drunk driving and hazardous road conditions. Above all, our firm urges everyone to prioritize safety during this festive season to avoid tragic incidents. 

The attorneys at Philpot Law Firm are committed to assisting those who have experienced the repercussions of drunk driving incidents. The aftermath of such accidents can lead to substantial medical bills and car repairs, potentially impacting the joy of the holiday season for years to come. With the goal of helping individuals reclaim their lives, our firm emphasizes its commitment to providing support during this challenging time.

Statistics reveal a sobering truth, with approximately 37 people in the United States involved in fatal drunk driving crashes daily. This statistic tends to escalate during the holiday season, emphasizing the need for heightened awareness while driving. Driving under the influence is illegal in every state, yet impaired driving remains a daily occurrence, exacerbated by holiday festivities.

In 2021 alone, over 13,000 deaths resulted from drunk-driving crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This was a 14% increase from 2020. The firm underscores the importance of staying focused and aware on the road, especially during the holidays, when the risk of accidents is heightened.
