Record Drunk Driving Accidents During Thanksgiving

Our Florida lawyers who handle car accident and drunk driver cases are deeply saddened to learn of the the needless death of Tiffany Ann Woodham and her unborn baby girl.  

Tragedy struck Ms. Woodham when she was on her way to the hospital to deliver her baby.  A drunk driver struck the rear of her car.  Doctors tried to save her unborn baby girl by attempting to perform an emergency C-Section, but both the mother and the baby died.  Our prayers go out to Ms. Woodham's family.  

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, the driver of the van, 37 year old Thomas Dick of Tulsa, Oklahoma was charged with vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and several other charges.  Dick was speeding and had a blood alcohol content of .131; almost twice the legal limit in Florida.  

Thanksgiving is approaching.  According to the Florida's Highway Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, more alcohol-related car and truck accident deaths occur around Thanksgiving than any other holiday. 

During the week of Thanksgiving, 2012, the Florida Highway Patrol arrested 136 apparently drunk drivers on state highways and issued nearly 5,000 more speeding tickets.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 431 traffic accident deaths, nearly half related to alcohol last year during the 4-day Thanksgiving holiday.   Sixty-one percent of those traffic deaths occurred at night between the hours of 6 PM and 6 AM.  

The Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, which colleges students often call "Blackout Wednesday", is the biggest drinking night of the year for college students returning home for the holidays. 

Please drive safely and responsibly.  Always wear a seat belt.  Most people killed in automobile crashes were not wearing their seat belt.   

If you have been involved in an automobile accident, you need to consult right away with an expert.  Steven Meyer is a board certified expert in civil trial law, an area of the law that includes automobile accidents and personal injury claims.  Our team of experiences professionals will be happy to discuss the details of your accident claim with you.  We offer a free initial consultation and work on many cases on a contingency fee (we only get paid if we recover money for you).
