The holiday season has arrived. A year ago, some were withdrawn from loved ones because transportation was impossible due to COVID restrictions. Whether this is a cheerful time of year to gather and see your loved ones you haven’t seen in years or a time of mourn, you must travel with caution and awareness. 

 

This Thanksgiving looks a little different this year. With reduced restrictions, open borders, and international travel, traveling is once again a priority for the people who are ready to reunite with their friends and family. AAA predicts roughly 53.4 million people will be traveling, with a majority traveling by car-48.3 million people. Those are huge numbers. This year’s forecast marks the highest single-year increase in Thanksgiving travelers since 2005.

 

Although this will be an economic booster, and people can reunite with their family after years of separation, traveling does not come without a cost. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving tends to be one of the deadliest days of the year. With millions of Americans traveling the roadways increases the risk for accidents. Other factors that also attribute to more accidents, include:

 

  • Speed
  • Driving with drugs or alcohol in your system
  • Drivers of all age groups
  • Distracted driving

 

Whether you are traveling to see a loved one or family is coming to see you, our Florida car accident attorneys at Advocates USA provide you with a few statistics and why it is imperative to drive with caution during the holiday season. 

 

Not to frighten you, but sadly, not a year has passed, even during COVID, that we receive those dreaded phone calls that their loved one has been involved in a fatal car accident or accidents that involve injuries. They need a Florida personal injury lawyer to help them fight their legal battle. And sadly, most fatal car accidents could have been avoided had the driver or drivers been alert. Although it is inevitable, accidents will continue to occur even for the most cautious drivers.   

 

If you suffer injuries or lost a loved one in a fatal car accident during Thanksgiving travel, contact our car accident lawyers at Advocates USA by calling 1-800-872-4878.

 

Florida car accidents caused by uninsured drivers

Since the pandemic, people have begun traveling to enjoy their friends, family, and good food. It is not by coincidence that Florida happens to be a popular destination for international and domestic travelers. With gorgeous weather and a lot to offer, people are swarming the airports and roadways. The Florida airports will be transporting people all over the state from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, up to Orlando, or over to Tampa. And how are travelers getting around? Either a car they drove over the border or rental companies. More than ever, traveling during Thanksgiving or any holiday, you must be on high alert because vacationers will be traveling an unknown road.  

 

According to statistics from 2016, Thanksgiving is the second deadliest holiday of the year, coming in after New Years Day. Car accidents accounted for a 100% increase in injuries and a 64% increase in deaths. The scary statistic shows a 34% increase, on average, in the number of car accidents and 38% more fatalities, and each year these percentages continue to rise.

 

This information is not meant to scare you, but numbers don’t lie. But what you take away from this blog and how you react can make the difference.

 

If you were in a car accident and suffered injuries from an uninsured driver, or if you were hit by a tourist in Florida, Advocates USA can help. Call us at 1-800-872-4878 for a free evaluation 24 hours a day.

 

Why Car Accidents Are Increased During The Holidays 

When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of great company, food, nap, and roadway mayhem. For sure, with millions of people on the road to get to their destination, it will cause delays, traffic, and road rage, which will result in car accidents. With holiday travel up 13% from last year, you need to be extra cautious getting to and from your destination.

 

Below we have compiled a list of the most common causes of car accidents during holiday travel:

 

  • Influence of drugs or alcohol-especially during the holidays when friends and family gather for celebrations. Rather than driving, pay the extra money to save a life, and reduce the risk of an accident. Use a ride-share service like Uber or Lyft.
  • Congestion on the road- more people traveling equates to more cars on the road and an increased chance for accidents.
  • Distracted drivers-traveling with family or friends, looking at mobile devices to change the music, or calling a loved one distracts the driver. Taking your eyes off the road for a second can result in an accident.
  • Road rage- Driving, in general, can be stressful, but during the holiday, people tend to be more stressed, especially with the busy roadways. The stress accompanied by driving can bring out road rage or other negligent driving behaviors that can contribute to car accidents. 
  • Inclement weather- accidents are more prominent when roads are wet, combined with high speed and lack of visibility.  
  • Poor vehicle maintenance contributes to accidents, and it is something that can be easily fixed—maintenance your vehicle before traveling a great distance.

 

Although these tips seem self-explanatory and straightforward, often, these tips are neglected. By practicing safe and responsible driving, it can save lives. Contact our experienced Florida personal injury lawyers near you at Advocates USA if you have been injured in an accident over Thanksgiving. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling us at 1-800-872-4878 for a free consultation.

 

Stay safe this Turkey Day, and keep your eyes on the road.
