Were You Injured in a Labor Day Car Accident?

Were You Injured in a Labor Day Car Accident?

For many people, Labor Day weekend is a time of relaxation and family fun. As with any holiday weekend, however, festivities at this time are often spoiled by an increase in the number of impaired drivers on the roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it is estimated that an average of 36 fatalities per day occurred between 2001 and 2005 in the United States as the result of crashes involving intoxicated drivers, with these numbers increasing over holiday periods. Over the recent 2015 Labor Day holiday weekend, estimates from the American Safety Council indicate that 167 people were involved in DUI-related crashes.

The number of car accidents tends to skyrocket over holiday periods because many Americans are off work and more likely to be traveling. A tragic example of this trend comes from Washington State where two young parents, Delonte Antwuan Tobe and Shalaya Moore-Tobe, were killed by a drunk driver Sunday afternoon while heading out for groceries, leaving three young children behind.

While this example is a worst-case scenario, tragedies like this happen all too often in the United States, causing debilitating injuries to innocent people.
