As February is fully underway and love is in the air, our Reyes Browne Reilley staff want to remind everyone to be careful on the roads around this special holiday. This year, Americans are projected to spend 32% more on Valentine’s Day than the record-setting year we had last year. We can attribute a substantial part of the Valentine’s Day spending forecast in 2020 to alcohol consumption, especially with Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday.
We want to remind those who have plans to go out on Valentine’s Day to please find a sober ride if you and your loved one decide to have your fair share of adult beverages. Spending money on Valentine’s Day is clearly a common occurrence. Spend a little extra to ensure you have a safe ride home. It’s cheaper than getting hauled into jail in the back of a police car if you were to get caught. The most important thing to keep in mind; you risk your own lives as well as the lives of others by behaving in a negligent way when you drink and drive.
There are far too many car accidents happening daily in Texas. Most of the fatalities which occur on our roadways in the United States, happen because of drivers being under the influence. Be smart during your romantic evening. Hail a cab or order an Uber. If you are going to order an Uber, be sure to take an Uber Black Car. Their drivers come with a higher standard for insurance policies, so you are not left out to dry should anything bad happen during your ride. They are also typically using a much nicer vehicle for your special evening out on the town.
If someone happens to hit you while you are out on your special Valentine’s day plans, be sure to call the experienced attorneys who will help you get the compensation you deserve. Our Reyes Browne Reilley attorneys have three decades of experience taking care of victims of those who decided to drive while drunk. We will help you get the compensation which you deserve. If we do not win, you do not pay us a penny. Call us now for your 100% free consultation at (214) 526-7900.
