Protecting Drunk Driving Injury Victims This Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend Among Worst Holidays To Hit The Road

Memorial Day weekend signifies the start of Summer for everyone as well as an excuse for a weekend getaway. Along with the beach trips, boat rides around Charleston Harbor, and barbecues planned over this long weekend, come the increased traffic on the roadways. According to AAA Carolinas, more than 593,000 South Carolinians will travel on Memorial Day weekend, which is the highest number since 2005. With a record number of drivers on the road over this long weekend, comes the increased risk of being injured in a car accident.

Drunk Driving Statistics

Being injured by a drunk driver is a lot more common than you may think. About one in three traffic fatalities in the United States involve a drunk driver according to statistics. There were nearly 22,000 DUI arrests last year in the Palmetto State and approximately 33% of traffic fatalities were contributed to drinking and driving. These statistics are alarming as we approach this Memorial Day weekend because we know that, if you combine the increased number of vehicles on the roads and boats on the waterways with the increased consumption of alcohol, drunk driving and boating accidents can be prevalent and deadly.

Drunk Driving Victims Need An Experienced Trial Lawyer On Their Side

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a drunk driver or someone boating under the influence this Memorial Day weekend, you should be entitled to compensation for the significant injury and damages. It is important to call a lawyer immediately after being injured in a car accident to ensure that you have the best chance to recover maximum damages. It is also important to call an experienced trial lawyer as opposed to an attorney that is looking to settle your claim quickly because they lack the experience to fight for your rights.

At Young & Young, we are former prosecutors and a former judge who are always prepared, if necessary, to take your case to trial to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. Unlike most other firms, we do not pass our cases off to an inexperienced associate who does not know what they are doing. We understand that being injured by a drunk driver can be a traumatic and life changing experience for you or your loved one and that is why we will give our clients our cell phone numbers and make sure that we are available to you 24/7 to answer any questions about your case.
