Drunk Driving Crashes Can Ruin Your New Year’s
While New Year’s celebrations might look a little different in 2020 than in previous years, one thing is still for certain – many people are sure to toast champagne and enjoy drinks throughout the night. Unfortunately, many of those people will also make the decision to try to drive their vehicles after they have been drinking.
New Year’s Eve is one of the deadliest nights for drunk driving accidents across the United States, and it is no different in South Atlanta. While you might make smart decisions and avoid impaired driving, not everyone will do so, and you might have your New Year’s ruined by a drunk driver.
Effects of Drunk Driving Crashes
The problem with serious accidents and injuries is that they will not just ruin one night for victims. The effects of a serious injury can last for weeks, months, or even the rest of your life. Many injured crash victims face a long road to recovery, which can include:
- Medical treatment, including emergency care, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, and more
- Missing work because of your treatment or due to limitations presented by your injuries – this can also cause you to lose income and have financial concerns
- Experiencing pain, suffering, or mental trauma due to the crash or your injuries
When a drunk driver is responsible for causing the above effects on your life, that driver should also be responsible for compensating you for your losses.
