Did You Suffer Injuries on New Year’s Eve?

New Year’s Eve Injury Risks
Revelry often involves an increased risk of injury, regardless of how safe you are being. You can never fully account for the negligence or carelessness of others, especially when there is alcohol involved. Some examples of common New Year’s Eve accidents include:
- Crashes caused by drunk drivers
- Slip and falls caused by the negligence of bar or restaurant staff
- Incidents involving negligent security
- Intentional assaults
- Public transportation accidents
In the event that you were injured this December 31st, there are a few steps you should take to protect your rights. First, be sure to seek medical attention if you haven’t already – and follow your doctor’s advice. Do not post about your accident on social media, and certainly do not accept a settlement offer from anyone who may make one. If you accept a settlement that is below the actual value of your case, it’s very difficult to obtain more compensation for your losses in the future. Finally, you should contact a lawyer as soon as you can.
