Car Accident Lawyers in Harrisburg Report: Vacation Traffic Expected To Be A Record High this Year
May 21, 2014
Whether you travel down the shore, up to the mountains or to some other family retreat, you joined millions of other Americans enjoying the official start of the summer season this weekend. Along with the longer days and warmer temperatures comes an increase in the amount of vehicles traveling the nation’s roads.
According to the American Automobile Association, over 36 million individuals travelled over 50 miles from their homes over Memorial Day weekend. A large majority, over 88%, drove to their destination. It was predicted that this will be a record year for road traffic with the second largest number of travelers leaving their homes over Memorial Day weekend since 2000.
Increased road traffic is often accompanied by an increase in the number of motor vehicle collisions. Especially when alcohol is involved, injuries sustained in automobile crashes can be extremely serious and often life threatening. If you or a loved one is involved in an auto accident during vacation travel, you may be faced with the staggering costs of property damage to your vehicle, past and future medical costs, rehabilitation costs and loss of earnings. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries including your pain and suffering.
