Memorial Day accident risks

If you or someone in your family is planning to hop in the car for a road trip over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend, you may well be a bit concerned about keeping everyone safe while on the road. Your concerns are understandable as holiday times have sadly become known for accidents that not only interfere with fun events but that leave people with serious injuries or struggling to understand the loss of a loved one.

The financial site Value Penguin took a look at records from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that provided information about how many people are killed in motor vehicle accidents during major holiday weekends. These weekends included the New Year's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Labor Day, Fourth of July and Memorial Day holidays. Out of all seven of these event times, it was Memorial Day that stood out as the deadliest on U.S. roads and highways.

In the five years from 2011 through 2015, auto accidents over that holiday weekend claimed an average of 312 lives each year. Close behind were Labor Day and the Fourth of July with 308 and 307 vehicular fatalities, respectively. Certainly this does not mean you are guaranteed to be in a crash on this particular weekend but you should be aware of the risk and ready to take action if need be.

If you would like to learn more about how you or a friend or family member might seek help after being involved in a car accident over a holiday time, please feel free to visit the crash compensation page of our Connecticut personal injury website.
