MADD Says Holidays are a National Day of Remembrance for Families of DUI Victims

LOS ANGELES, California (December 3, 2015) — The holidays are an especially difficult time for surviving family members of a victim of drunk driving, but Christmas is by far one of the worst times of the year for those who have suffered a loss.

“This time of year is especially hard on families because it’s the end of another year without their loved ones or the end of a year they last had them in their lives,” said Attorney James Johnson, a personal injury attorney and supporter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

So this year Mothers Against Drunk Driving created its first National Day of Remembrance to honor and remember victims of tragic drunk or drugged driving crashes. Today throughout the United States there are events being held to honor those people lost in DUI crashes.

MADD is asking family and friends of victims to attend events held from coast to coast in honor of these victims and or post an image of their loved ones using #MADDremembers on social media sites. Some people are also dedicating an online place setting as a tribute to honor their loved ones on MADD’s national website. The idea is they will always have a place at the holiday table and in the hearts of family members and MADD.

Indeed, the impact of drunk driving is felt by surviving family and friends throughout the year as each holiday comes and goes. Sadly, as the years go by, the number of DUI crashes continues to add new victims to the death toll.

According to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Report, there were 3,104 people killed in 2013 traffic accidents in the Golden State including 1,075 deaths involving a drunken driver. There were also 16,060 people injured in DUI crashes throughout California in 2013.

The efforts of MADD over the past 35 years have helped reduce the number of people killed or hurt in crashes estimated at 320,000 lives.

This Christmas and holiday season, honor the victims of drunk driving by resolving never to drink and drive, be a designated driver and donate to MADD. Call 877-MADD.Help for more information or visit www.madd.org.

The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
