Auto crashes and the Fourth of July

On Behalf of | Jul 1, 2017 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Whether a driver consumes alcohol and decides to get behind the wheel or a passenger distracts someone who is trying to operate a vehicle, there are countless reasons why traffic accidents keep happening. At Bruno & Bruno, we are also aware that certain holiday activities, such as parades and heavy traffic due to a festival, can also increase the chances of a car accident.

For many communities, the Fourth of July holiday is a time to celebrate with fireworks and other attractions. In some areas, large festivals occur during this time of year, attracting a large number of people from out of town. Unfortunately, this can result in auto collisions, for various reasons. Not only do tourists and non-locals sometimes have difficulty with directions and lack familiarity with local roads, but heavy congestion can also cause a crash. In fact, an accident may happen after a firework explodes near a driver. On top of all of these factors, some people drive after consuming alcohol, and many people drink during Fourth of July celebrations.

Clearly, there are a number of risks associated with holiday celebrations, particularly the Fourth of July. If you are planning on attending a fireworks show or another type of celebration, it is important to be mindful of the dangers. If you or a family member are involved in an accident caused by a negligent driver during the holiday, you should immediately go over your legal options.
