Careless Drivers on Winter Roads
It’s not hopeless if you have been hurt in an accident. We have years of experience in the legal field, and we work hard and smart to achieve positive results. Some important factors to consider in a winter road accident include:
- Driver Responsibility: Drivers must be cautious on winter roads. When they speed or fail to allow enough distance between cars to safely stop, they are not exercising due caution. Depending upon other circumstances, these drivers may be found solely liable for car accident injuries.
- Multiple Car Accidents: Winter road conditions often give rise to pileups and other multiple car accidents. It can be very difficult to demonstrate any one driver was more negligent than the other. Often, it is found that the winter road conditions were responsible for the accident and no driver was at fault.
- Maintenance Problems: In some cases, a party charged with maintaining winter roads may be found liable for damages. Parking lots, driveways and other areas must be cleared of ice and snow in a timely manner to protect visitors from harm. Failure to do so can result in traffic accidents and slip-and-fall accidents.
Whatever the cause of your winter road accident, our lawyers are prepared to help you seek full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
