If you’re planning on heading out to see family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday, you’re not alone. Millions travel around the Thanksgiving holiday, and near 90 percent of them travel by automobile. Thanksgiving week makes for some very busy roads, and an increase by nearly 25 percent in car accidents. Charlotte residents may be less likely to have to deal with some of the obstacles that occur more often in the north, such as snow or deer in their headlights, they can still get sleepy from too much food or from that glass of wine. Nearly 40 percent of fatal accidents that occur during Thanksgiving week involve a drunk driver.
With these additional challenges on the road being careful is not enough for many people as they find themselves in a car accident and may suffer a personal injury or may even know someone who gets killed in an automobile crash. With the holiday season just getting under way, it’s hard to think about. But knowing how to proceed in the event of an accident is important.
Taking care of any medical needs is of course near the top of the list of priorities. But it is also important to make sure police reports are complete, and witnesses have given statements telling what has happened. By keeping good track of the events of the accident as well as the aftermath you can remain confident in any legal proceeding that may follow.
