Drunk Drivers are Dangerous Drivers
One of the most serious and most easily preventable threats to highway safety is that posed by drivers who are operating their vehicles under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances. The fact that so many continue to engage in this dangerous behavior despite the well-documented associations between drunk driving and serious motor vehicle accidents defies common sense and logic. But some habits are hard to break, and the innocent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and others are left to suffer the consequences of an intoxicated motorist’s poor decisions.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver then you may be able to file a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation for medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other damages incurred by the accident. This can be far more beneficial than simply relying upon an insurance claim or settlement offer.

Holiday Drunk Driving Risks
Though there is a natural assumption that intoxicated drivers would be entering the roadway after a few drinks at the bar, this is not reflective of the true circumstances. Many individuals have ready access to alcohol in a wide variety of settings including the home, sporting events, restaurants, concert venues, and even the workplace. Therefore you could conceivably have encountered a drunk driver almost anywhere. Moreover, intoxicated motorists may be on the roadway at any time of the day, on any day of the year. But there are times when there is traditionally a spike in drunk driving, including the following occasions:
- Memorial Day weekend
- Labor Day weekend
- Super Bowl Sunday
- New Year’s Eve
- Independence Day
Regardless of the time or your location, you should never have been subjected to the reckless actions of a drunk driver. Contact the Sheboygan car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 to speak with a skilled and experienced attorney about your case.
