Serious auto accidents or any other type of accident due to someone else not following the rules is bad. I think at the Holiday Season it is worse. I have read that people can suffer from depression during the Holidays. This may be true but I believe for the majority of people the Holidays are the best part of the year because it is the time when we are together with friends and family. It would be wonderful if we could be as joyous and happy all year round, but work and life’s problems sometimes interferes and “throws us a curve.” But when the Holidays come people make that extra effort to put aside problems to enjoy family and friends.
I read in the paper this morning that there had not been a single auto fatality so far during the Thanksgiving Holiday. Wonderful! Let’s knock on wood, cross our fingers, carry an extra rabbit’s foot, and be extra careful. At Coxwell & Associates we focus our time, energy and attention of helping people who are seriously injured or who have been charged with a criminal violation. We have obtained verdicts and settlements of approximately 300 million dollars for our clients. It is what we do. The legal system cannot transport an injured person back in time before the injury. The legal system can only provide compensation for the harms and losses a person suffers.
I don’t want to meet you in my office as a seriously injured person. Let’s meet at the bookstore, at the grocery store, or on the walking trail. I always end up becoming friends with my clients. If you don’t get seriously hurt and we never meet then while we both may miss a good friendship, you will be all the better for not having been injured. While you are out traveling this Thanksgiving Holiday look twice at stop signs and red lights. Drive “double defensively.” When you leave the stores look around and be safe. Crime usually increases during the Holidays. I want everyone to make it through the Holidays and have nothing but joy with their family and friends.
