Proceed with caution on the roads this New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is almost here. It's a holiday embraced by many because it is cause to celebrate either the successes or the end of the year, and to embrace the future year and all its potential for happiness, good health and success.

While many people like to keep the evening low key and maybe just enjoy each other's company on the couch watching the ball drop on television, other people make the most of the occasion and join family and friends either at parties in peoples' homes, or go out for a night filled with dancing, music, and often drinks.

It comes as no surprise, then, that each year, New Year's Eve proves to be one of the more dangerous nights to be out on the roads. As responsible you and your family and friends may be when it comes to drinking and driving, you have no idea whether the other people you share the roads with have extended you the same courtesy. Others on the road may not be as responsible.

Unfortunately, car accidents related to drunk, reckless or negligent drivers are not uncommon, and can lead to catastrophic injuries for the victim. If it can be determined that negligence played a role in an accident, or that a drunk driver is to blame, a car accident victim may be entitled to compensation for his or her injuries. This may include all medical expenses, including but not limited to rehabilitation and therapy, pain and suffering for the victim and possibly the victim's family, as well as compensation for lost wages due to the injury or fatality.
