Most Common Christmas Injuries

The holidays are both a time of joy and, unfortunately, a time of accidents. As people rush to get to holiday parties, or shoppers rush about trying to get an in-demand gift, accidents happen. If you have been in an accident and suffered a personal injury this holiday season and were not at fault, you might be entitled to damages.

Experienced personal injury attorneys from the Varcadipane & Pinnisi, PC are here to answer any questions you might have about your Christmas injury, and we invite you to read on to learn more about the most common accidents that happen and how an attorney can help.

Distracted Driving and Car Accidents are Common

When people are out hunting for the best holiday deals and trying to navigate around the malls and curbside pickup locations spread across the city, car accidents happen. On the roads, drivers are rushing about from one event to another and may have been drinking, leading to more accidents for drivers everywhere during the holiday season. If you have been in a car accident and the other driver was breaking the law, you could be entitled to damages as they are liable for accidents caused due to legal violations or negligence. One of the most common causes of accidents on the roads is distracted driving.

Distracted driving is driving while doing any activity that takes your attention off the road while you drive, including texting or talking on a cell phone or smartphone while driving, talking to passengers, or using other electronics. It can be difficult or even impossible for you to know what other drivers were doing at the time they hit you, as you were doing your best to drive safely and responsibly. Your attorney knows what questions to ask and what evidence to collect in support of your case.

Truck Accidents

More online orders and deliveries mean more trucks on the road, which can lead to more truck crashes. Trucks of all sizes will be everywhere on the highway, in our neighborhoods, or in the parking lots of our favorite stores. Truck drivers are on tight schedules, so it is common for them to cut safety corners to make more deliveries, which can injure others. When these trucks collide with smaller vehicles, the damage and injuries can be devastating.

Pedestrian Accidents

Many people will be hustling through parking lots or rushing to parties during the Christmas season, and this increases the risk of pedestrian collisions and injuries. These accidents can happen in parking lots, on sidewalks, or even while crossing crosswalks. Pedestrians tend to sustain particularly severe injuries, which can disrupt the entire holiday season – and their future in general.
