Whether you celebrate on February 14th or another night, you plan to make this a special Valentine’s Day. You want it to be a Valentine’s Day that neither of you ever forget. However, you want it to be the romance and love that lingers and not the pain and suffering of a Kansas Turnpike accident injury.
Why Valentine’s Day Car Accidents Happen
If you are going to be out on the town to celebrate this Valentine’s Day then it is important to be aware of the following risks:
- Drunk driving – Don’t let the wine or champagne flow too freely while you are out. One of you will need to be sober to drive home safely.
- Distracted driving – It is important not to let your date—or your cell phone—distract you while you’re behind the wheel.
- Winter driving – The snow and ice aren’t over yet. Watch for winter weather hazards.
- Speeding – You may be running late or eager to get home, but don’t put yourself or your loved one at risk.
- Failing to wear seat belts – This can make a serious injury more likely if you are in a crash.
Of course, you alone cannot prevent every car accident. You may do everything in your power to prevent a crash, but another driver may not do the same and may cause you and your loved one to suffer serious accident injuries.
What to Do If You’re Hurt in a Valentine’s Day Crash
It clearly wasn’t the Valentine’s Day you envisioned, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have the future that you dream about. In order to protect your future it is important to fight for your fair and just recovery. Such a recovery may include compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost income, out of pocket costs, pain, suffering and other damages.
