Holiday-related incidents that can lead to wrongful death claims

The Fourth of July should be a time to celebrate, relax and have fun with family and friends. Sadly, for too many people, this holiday becomes anything but joyful when a loved one is killed in an accident.

Holiday-related accidents can and do occur every year during Independence Day. Below, we examine a few of the more common incidents that lead to catastrophic injuries and death during this particular time of year.

  1. Explosions: Despite the fact that fireworks are a serious threat to people's safety, they are incredibly popular over the Fourth of July. However, if a person ignites fireworks too closely to prohibited spaces, is intoxicated when setting them off or is otherwise reckless or negligent, he or she can cause serious damage, including death. 
  2. Drunk driving: Whether you are watching a parade, at a party on the beach or in your backyard at a neighborhood barbecue, there is a high likelihood that at least one person around you is drinking. Drinking and Fourth of July celebrations often go hand-in-hand, which means that there will likely be more people driving after drinking on Georgia roads putting others in danger.
  3. Vehicle and watercraft accidents: Bikes, motorcycles, Jet Skis, boats, 4-wheelers, golf carts and scooters are all ways people get around during the Fourth of July. However, too many folks fail to take proper precautions or secure adequate training before sitting down to operate these modes of transportation. This can lead to serious collisions that result in fatal injuries.

These are just a few scenarios that prove to be unfortunately common during holidays like the Fourth of July. And for too many people, they result in a catastrophic fatality.

If you lose or have lost a loved one in one of these accidents, then it is critical to speak with an attorney to examine your legal rights and options. Unfortunately, there is no way to undo a fatal accident, but filing a claim for damages can help survivors find some closure, accountability and support in the aftermath of a tragic loss.
