Happy New Year from your Florida personal injury attorneys at Aronfeld Trial Lawyers. Did you know that statistically New Year’s Eve is one of the most dangerous and deadly times of year to be on the road? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drunk-driving accidents and fatalities typically skyrocket on New Year’s Eve compared to other holidays and weekends. There are two primary reasons why: 1) More vehicles are on the road after midnight; 2) More drivers and pedestrians are likely to be intoxicated on New Year’s Eve.
If you think you are immune, you should know that more than two thirds of New Year’s Eve drunk-driving arrests are of first-time offenders, not habitual criminals. At Aronfeld Trial Lawyers, we are committed to keeping the streets and highways of Florida safe. This year we are proud to announce that we have teamed up with UBER to offer you a discount on your ride home on New Year’s Eve. UBER will deliver a qualified driver wherever you end up on New Year’s Eve, and get you home safely.

Driving with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher is illegal in Florida as it is in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. As a lawyer who has represented individuals and families who have been devastated by the effects of a drunk driver, I urge you to take this offer seriously. The trauma and financial costs of a drunk-driving accident can be overwhelming.
LEGAL LIABILITY FOR OVERSERVING ALCOHOL
Those who overserve alcohol to individuals or minors can face serious legal issues as well, if those people get behind the wheel and cause an accident. By calling UBER, you can protect yourself and your guests. Accept this generous offer to protect yourself, or give it to someone you love, and avoid the heart-wrenching trauma, financial costs, and both the civil and criminal consequences of drunk driving.

We wish you and your family the safest, healthiest, and happiest 2016.
