Attorney Anderson was my strength through this difficult time.

Sunday night following Super Bowl often leads to deadly accidents

It comes as no surprise that year after year, the day after the Super Bowl is notoriously known as one of the worst days for productivity in the American workforce. The football game is watched by tens of millions throughout the country, often at bars, restaurants, and at the homes of family and friends.

The event is a tradition for many. For sports fans, it marks the end of a long exciting season; for non-fans, it often means that they will get their spouse or significant other back on Sundays, and sometimes Mondays and Thursday nights until next fall. Non-fans of football even find ways to embrace the evening, often socializing with friends and family and spending more time enjoying the halftime show and commercial between the game than the game itself.

But with the joy and entertainment during the game, often comes an increase of risks while on the road travelling home after the clock strikes zero. Even for those who party responsibly, there is always the risk that someone else on the road, behind you, beside you, or on the other side of the road approaching, was inappropriate and got behind the wheel when he or she was intoxicated. Inevitably, on that Monday morning, newspapers across the nation will be littered with headlines describing drunk driving accidents, and the aftermaths, often deadly, behind them.

If you had a loved one who was involved in a wrongful death accident, nothing can be done to get that cherished person back. But you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical costs associated with the accident, compensation for damages to property, and even compensation for lost future wages. You may wish to speak with a local law firm familiar with wrongful death to see whether you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
