We at Wayne Wright hope that everyone will take their time when commuting to the different stores this weekend in their hopes for best deals while shopping, but unfortunately that isn’t always the case. Did you know there are 34% more car accidents on Black Friday, 25% more accidents on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and 20% more accidents on Thanksgiving Day compared to the two weeks before and after, according to new data from Progressive Insurance.
On Thanksgiving evening and Black Friday, some of the most common kinds of accidents were backing or parking related, so be wary of parking lots full of shoppers in a mad rush to get holiday deals.
On Wednesday and Sunday, the danger is in holiday travel. The Sunday after Thanksgiving has historically had the most out-of-state accidents, most commonly in Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, California, and North Carolina.
We wish you the best this holiday season and hope that you drive safely.
If you should find yourself or someone you know involved in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence please don’t hesitate to call us. We have lawyers standing by 24/7 making sure we are here for you this holiday season.
