Celebrations to welcome in the New Year will soon begin. While this festive time can be a source of entertainment and fun, it can also be dangerous. If you are seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence, you should speak with a New York personal injury attorney to learn what your rights are.
Here are 5 tips for a safe New Year’s celebration:
- no matter how little you may have had to drink, don’t get behind the wheel of a car;
- choose a designated driver before heading out;
- wear a safety belt at all times;
- avoid driving during early/late evening hours on New Year’s; and
- if you are hosting a party, arrange for guests to safely get home.
Drunk driving is a common problem during New Year’s. It can lead to serious or fatal injuries. If you or someone you love was the victim of someone else’s careless or reckless actions, you should consult with a New York personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You could be entitled to compensation that addresses your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more. An attorney can determine if you have a valid claim that is worth pursuing.
