The holidays should be happy occasions with friends and family gathering to celebrate and have a good time. Unfortunately, many people suffer injuries or lose their loved ones over the holidays, especially those associated with drinking alcohol. The latest Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) report on holiday traffic fatalities indicates that driving on holidays is often a high-risk proposition.

Please call 888.352.2886 today in order to schedule a complimentary consultation with Mt. Dora auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham if you or a loved one has suffered injury due to a car accident.

Mt. Dora Car Accident Lawyer Pursues Just Compensation

According to the FLHSMV report for 2009, the 96-hour span that encompassed New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day saw the highest auto accident fatality rate per hour than any other holiday, over half of which involved alcohol. The numbers of lives lost per holiday are as follows:

  • Thanksgiving (120 hour span): 36 fatalities, 16 alcohol related
  • New Year’s (96 hour span): 34 fatalities, 19 alcohol related
  • Fourth of July (96 hour span): 30 fatalities, 17 alcohol related
  • Christmas (96 hour span): 28 fatalities, 9 alcohol related
  • Labor Day (96 hour span): 23 fatalities, 13 alcohol related
  • Memorial Day (96 hour span): 22 fatalities, 11 alcohol related

These statistics are somber reminders of why the holidays are special causes for concern. Many cars clog the roads as people travel to visit one another, increasing traffic and all other associated driving risks. Drivers may be easily distracted by cars full of celebrating passengers, or they may be speeding to reach party destinations. Not surprisingly, partying often includes drinking alcohol, and many forget to designate a sober driver before indulging.

Cunningham is there to help. After an accident, call 888.352.2886 and ask for an appointment to discuss your case.
