Car accidents that occur on New
Year’s Eve are all too common and often end in fatalities according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It is thought to be one of the
most risky times of the year to be driving on the road. People often attend
parties and gatherings on New Year’s Eve, leave drunk and end up driving home
while intoxicated. Driving drunk puts the lives of other people on the road at
risk for personal injury and death. Drivers are negligent when they decide to
engage in drunk driving. Car accident attorneys can help victims of car crashes
with their cases and ensuring that their rights are protected.
