Personal Injury

New Year's Day the Second Most Deadly Day For Drivers

New Year's Eve is a fun time for family and friends to get together and celebrate. Unfortunately, with all of the celebration comes an increase in personal injury. Car accidents tend to skyrocket around this time as many drivers make the careless choice to get behind the wheel drunk. In the blink of an eye, a person's health or life can be taken from them by a drunk driver, leaving them to start the New Year with an overwhelming and frustrating set of problems. If a drunk driver has left you in need of medical care, trust in the lawyers at Tracey & Fox to protect your rights to legal action.

Did you know...

  • 140 people were killed in car accidents caused by drunk drivers on New Year's Day in 2013
  • The 12-hour window between 6:00 p.m. on December 31 and 6:00 a.m. on January 1 sees a more than 70 percent increase in drunk driving accidents
  • New Year's Day is the second most deadly time for drivers, behind only the Fourth of July

Tracey & Fox reminds you that if you plan to drink this New Year's Eve, make sure you don't drive! Make arrangements to stay with a friend, or take advantage of public transportation, ride share services, or a designated driver to help you get home safely.
