Ride Share Holiday Season
The holiday season is a time of joy, celebration, and social gatherings. However, during the festive cheer, there lies a hidden danger that often gets overlooked — the increased risk of drunk driving incidents. The combination of holiday parties, end-of-year celebrations, and the general spirit of merriment means that alcohol often plays a significant role in these gatherings. Unfortunately, this leads to a rise in the number of individuals who unwisely choose to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.

Understanding these figures is not just about comprehending numbers; it’s about recognizing the human lives impacted and the families forever changed by these preventable tragedies. We aim to provide you with the knowledge and resources to make informed decisions, thereby contributing to a safer holiday season for everyone.

download-4A single-vehicle accident can be every bit as serious as a crash involving multiple cars.  Some people think that single vehicle accidents mean that the driver is always at fault and that there is nothing they can to recover for their injuries, including pain and suffering, medical bills and missed time from work.   That is simply not true.

Many factors beyond the control of the driver can lead to single vehicle collisions,including poor weather conditions, road conditions, and defects in your vehicle either from the manufacturer or from a negligent repair by a mechanic.  Any of these problems may have caused your accident and injuries. At Jeffrey Glassman Injury Lawyers, our Boston accident attorneys have helped many clients recover for their injuries sustained in single-vehicle accidents and can help you as well.

Single vehicle accidents are more common than you may think. Data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reveal that approximately 55 percent of motor vehicle crash deaths in 2016 occurred in single-vehicle crashes. In many states, that number climbs to over 60 perecent. Some common examples of such accidents include but are not limited to: running off the road, debris in the roadway, a dangerous object left in the road, poor road repairs and evasive maneuvers to avoid crashes with another driver.
