Drunk driving accidents claim far too many lives

A drunk driving accident is always a harrowing experience, but when the accident happens during the holiday season, the horror seems increased. The most obvious, and best, way that drunk driving accidents can be prevented is for people who have had alcohol to avoid driving. If a drunk driver does cause an accident, the victims of the accident may choose to seek compensation for the injuries they suffered.

Drunk drivers claim 28 lives per day. Take a few moments to think about how the family members of those 28 people are affected by the drunk driver's actions. Children can lose a parent and parents can lose a child. That is something that shouldn't happen if it can be prevented, and drunk driving crashes can always be prevented.

If you are on the roadway this holiday season, you should be sure to keep an eye out for signs of drunk drivers. These include speeding, driving very slowly, making very wide turns, stopping suddenly in the middle of the road or drifting in and out of lanes. Drunk drivers might also drive without headlights after dark or drive on the wrong side of the road.

People who notice that a driver is showing signs of being impaired should try to avoid the vehicle. Calling the authorities is another action that might be necessary, but only if there is a way to do so safely.

Whether you are injured in a drunk driving accident or lose a loved one, you can take action. A personal injury lawsuit can hold the drunk driver accountable for his or her choice to drive after drinking. This won't take away the effects of the accident, but it can help to send a strong message and help you get some closure.
