Traffic accidents and Halloween

Call For a Free Consultation


Following Halloween celebrations, some people are left with hangovers, while kids have an abundance of candy to work through. Sadly, some people are also left with injuries or the emotional pain that is associated with the loss of someone they love due to a car accident that occurred on the holiday. If you are suffering because of a crash that occurred on Halloween, it is essential for you to do all you can to hold the negligent driver responsible for his or her actions and obtain any benefits you are entitled to. Our law firm is well aware of the different reasons why motor vehicle accidents can be more likely on Halloween, and other holidays.

For starters, there is often an increase in both vehicle and pedestrian traffic during Halloween. With kids going door-to-door and more people on the road to celebrate the holiday, the chances of an accident are often greater in comparison to other days. Moreover, some people drink alcohol at parties, resulting in intoxication. With many people drinking, some inevitably make the reckless decision to get behind the wheel, which highlights how drunk driving is especially prevalent on this holiday. With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's celebrations coming up, it is vital to be mindful of this risk during other holidays as well.

Regrettably, traffic accidents can turn an entire holiday upside down and create pain that will last for months or years to come. More on motor vehicle collisions can be viewed in our car accidents section.
