We cover many of the risk factors that cause motor vehicle collisions, but in this post, we will take a closer look at clubbing, or attending a nightclub, and the chances of an auto accident afterward. Spending the night out in New York is dangerous for many reasons, especially when it comes to driving, even if one does not attend a club. Unfortunately, Meirowitz & Wasserberg, LLP knows some people pass away following a night of partying with friends and attending nightclubs, and these crashes happen for different reasons.
For starters, many people drink alcohol at clubs, and some even take unlawful substances. This can lead to intoxicated driving, which is obviously very dangerous on the road. People driving home from work or driving to work are sometimes struck by someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol after a night of clubbing. However, those who regularly attend clubs or spend a single night out can become involved in a crash for other reasons. For example, driving at night is more dangerous due to decreased visibility, more drunk drivers on the road and fatigue. Some people also become very excited (or excessively tired) after spending some time in a club, which also affects their driving abilities.
After a crash happens, it is imperative for victims to look into all the details that played a role in the wreck. Our law office has seen many of the unique factors that contribute to these collisions and we know how traumatizing they are for victims and their loved ones. On our NYC car accident page, we discuss other issues that are connected to traffic accidents at night.
