Providing Real Help To The Injured Since 1977

Be safe this Fourth of July holiday

Are you traveling over the Fourth of July holiday? Travelers who plan to fly to their destinations are having to cope with weather-related delays and the continued problems associated with the smoke generated by the Canadian wildfires that have drifted as far south as the Carolinas.

But even if you are preparing to drive to the festivities this year and celebrate with family and friends, danger lurks on the North Carolina state roads and highways. 

“Booze It & Lose It” campaign already kicked off

The Fourth of July is definitely a celebratory holiday to wave the red, white, and blue. But many partiers get too exuberant and overindulge in alcohol. When they climb behind the wheel of their cars, they then place everyone in their proximity in extreme danger of a severe or even deadly accident.

The state kicked off its annual Booze It & Lose It campaign against impaired drivers that will run through July 9. The state director for the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program encourages “people to have a good time, but it’s never wise to drink and then operate a car, truck, boat or any vehicle.” 

Unfortunately, despite the increased police presence on the state’s roads and waterways, people still succumb to the really bad decision to drink and drive.

Get your loved ones home safely this Fourth of July holiday

Of course, even when you do all the right things and arrange a sober ride home or refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages, you and your family can still suffer the consequences of a serious drunk-driving wreck.

If you wind up injured in a holiday collision, learning about your right to seek compensation for your damages, losses and injuries can help pave your road to recovery.
