The Fourth of July is a big holiday for traveling and getting together with friends and family. Unfortunately, that can also make it a more dangerous time to drive. You can do your best to avoid a car accident during this holiday and the days surrounding it, but sometimes there is just nothing that you can do to protect yourself if someone else is acting negligently. If you get hurt in a car accident during the Fourth of July weekend, a Corpus Christi, Texas drunk driving accident lawyer may be able to help you.

What Makes the Fourth of July More Dangerous?

The roads are crowded on the Fourth of July, and that can increase your chances of getting into an accident. On top of that, people are traveling and some of them are going long distances. That means that they may be up earlier than usual and that they could be sleepy behind the wheel, and that is dangerous.

One of the biggest issues is alcohol though. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration analyzed the data from the Fourth of July holiday period in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. The agency found that 1,460 drivers died in accidents during those times and that 38 percent of those drivers were impaired by alcohol.

What If I Get Into an Accident on the Fourth of July?

Even if you do your best to protect yourself, you can still get into an accident while driving on the Fourth of July. If you or a loved one suffer injuries in an accident and you believe that someone else was to blame for the accident, you may want to pursue compensation.

If you think this is a possibility, you need to act quickly to begin building a case. After the accident, call the police to the scene, take pictures of the accident scene and the damaged vehicles, and exchange information with any other drivers involved. If there are witnesses, get their information as well.

Then you will want to speak to a personal injury attorney from our law firm. We can help you pursue a reasonable compensation offer that can make up for any paychecks you missed and help you pay your medical bills.
