Black Friday is described as not only the biggest shopping day of the year but also the most dangerous shopping day of the year. Much of the focus is placed on workplace accidents or premises liability incidents involving patrons. These aren’t and weren’t the only types of injuries suffered in past years and on Black Friday this year.
Black Friday deals aren’t easy to obtain. In some cases, it requires staying up late and camping out in front of stores before they open well before dawn. This late-night waiting game can make someone sleepy, but it is no excuse for drowsy driving. The effects of operating a vehicle can be seen in the fatal accident that occurred on this year’s Black Friday in North Carolina.
