Summer is here! I imagine that many of you will be taking road trips, going on vacations, or taking a drive to the beach, or some exotic locale. This is the time of year that you will find many cars on the road as people will be traveling, enjoying the outdoors, and taking in what the landscape has to offer. That means that summer is also the season that has the highest incidence of auto accidents.
As a Myrtle Beach personal injury firm, Lam Law Firm, LLC is here to offer legal assistance for your car accident claim. Finding legal support is always advisable after an accident. Our attorney can form a course of action for your personal injury claim, to ensure you get the most favorable outcome possible.
What Leads to Summer Car Accidents
According to the National Safety Traffic Administration, teens and young adults, aged 15 to 20, are the age group most likely to get into an accident during the summer. The primary reason? Kids are out of school for the summer, driving home from college, and have more of a presence on the roads.
Other common causes of auto accidents in the summer:
- Heat makes a car more likely to break down
- Heat also affects many auto parts, especially the tires
- More drivers on vacation make the roads more congested
- There are more motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians enjoying the summer weather
- There is often more construction that takes place in the summer, making changes to the driving conditions or forcing drivers to find alternate routes
Holidays, such as Independence Day and Labor Day, are some of the most dangerous times for drivers, and law enforcement is on high alert for any drunk drivers. Knowing this, I want to make sure that your legal rights are protected and that you receive justice where it is due, especially if someone else caused your accident.
