Drunk drivers are involved in around 40 percent of fatal collisions between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, according to the NIAAA. Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. is doing its part to make sure Long Islanders don’t join the statistics this holiday season.
HOLTSVILLE, NY, December 13, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P., a personal injury firm serving Long Island residents, announced it will give away 100 Uber gift cards for use on New Year’s Eve 2019. To enter the giveaway, participants simply complete a short form on the law firm’s website, at https://www.lilawyer.com/charitable-giving/uber-gift-card-giveaway-new-years-eve-2019/ , and provide a valid email address, phone number, and a Long Island street address.
Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP has always been driven by a need to help people who have been injured, especially those who sustain injuries due to the negligence of another person. Partners Erin Hargis and Matthew Bligh hope this giveaway will help raise awareness of the problems of drinking and driving and will inspire Long Island residents to think of safety first.
The two lawyers grew deeply disturbed several years ago when The New York Times wrote about Long Island’s reputation for being the “drunken-driving capital of New York.” Suffolk County and Nassau County earned this dubious distinction after taking first and second place, respectively, in a ranking of counties that logged the most alcohol-related crashes and fatalities from alcohol-related crashes than any other New York county.
Bligh, a Long Island native, said that as a firm that represents victims of car accidents, he and his partners have seen first-hand the devastation these injuries can bring to a person and their family. They want to help drive the number of drunk-driving accidents down, and they determined that New Year’s Eve is an excellent time to start.
“New Year’s Eve is one of the most dangerous times of the year for drunk driving accidents,” Rosenberg said. “We want to do our part to ensure that Long Island residents know they have alternatives to drinking and driving.”
To accomplish this objective, Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP has organized an Uber gift card giveaway, valid on New Year’s Eve, 2019.
“We are giving away 100 Uber gift cards, each worth $25,” Hargis explained. “That should be enough to get 100 people and their fellow partiers home safe on New Year’s Eve, or New Year’s Day, depending upon how late they’re out.”
The lawyers and staff at Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P hope that Long Islanders will avail themselves of their Uber-card giveaway so they can enjoy a happy and safe holiday and a healthy 2020.
“If you don’t take Uber or another rideshare, call a taxi, or appoint a designated driver,” Bligh said. “It doesn’t get in the way of your fun to have someone else take the wheel when you’ve been drinking.”
