The 4th of July is perhaps the most celebrated summer holiday for Americans. With children out of school and individuals able to take vacation days around it, the 4th of July is often used as a reason to get together with family members, good friends, and beloved associates. When individuals come together to enjoy each other's company and to revel in the independence of the country, they may choose to do so with food, fireworks, and alcohol.
Responsible drinking among legal adults is generally not a problem, but it may quickly become a dangerous practice if a California driver decides to get behind the wheel of their car after consuming intoxicating beverages. Drunk driving is a cause of vehicle collisions because drivers who are impaired by alcohol often cannot make good decisions about how to react to always changing driving conditions.
The attorneys and staff of the Law Offices of Leonard Becker truly hope that all of the readers of the firm's legal blog have a safe and fun 4th of July holiday. Not everyone will be affected by a drunk driver in their lifetime and few will suffer serious losses over the 4th of July; those who do, though, may experience accident-related suffering for the rest of their lives.
The physical, financial, and emotional costs of surviving a drunk driving accident, or losing a loved one in a drunk driving accident, can be long-term and can be devastating. The Law Offices of Leonard Becker support the personal injury legal needs of car accident victims and provide them with the support and counsel they require to protect their legal rights and opportunities.
