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. As a responsible law firm dedicated to promoting safety and awareness, Jeffrey Glassman Injury Lawyers is deeply concerned about this issue and strongly advocates for the use of safer transportation alternatives, such as ridesharing services, during these festive times.

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. 

Holiday Drunk Driving Statistics

download-1-3-300x168With the sharing economy on the rise in recent years, ride-sharing companies are becoming equally as popular across Boston and other large areas.  Companies such as Uber, Lyft and Sidecar have become prolific over the past few years as alternative to a traditional taxi service. With their rise in popularity, problems are constantly arising with regard to liability for accidents.

Many individuals are using ride sharing companies on a frequent basis. However, many of those people are unsure about what to do if they are involved in an accident in an Uber or Lyft. With the influx of users and consumers, more problems are becoming apparent with these companies. One problem that has yet to be solved is the legal responsibility for damages when a ride sharing crash occurs. Ride sharing companies have established some rules for responsibility but the area still remains confusing and unresolved in many instances.

A driver for one of these ride sharing services will have his or her own personal insurance. The ridesharing company may also have supplemental insurance to cover crashes. If the driver is in an accident and the rider is injured, the plaintiff can have a difficult time collecting on his or her injuries.
