Icy Road Fatal Car Accident Lawyers

Several fatal crashes have occurred the last few days related to ice on the roads. That may be surprising given it hasn’t even snowed yet. But it is part of winter in Minnesota. Temperatures rise and fall, and there can be moisture that freezes during the night.

To put it plainly, winter driver requires extra care. Cars should always be driven a little slower in the winter. Also, there should be more space between your car and the car ahead of you. The MN Department of Transportation offers winter driving tips. Please check these out.

Our car accident lawyers handle many serious crash cases every winter. Unfortunately, bad injuries, or even deaths, are the result. Most of these crashes would be avoided with careful driving. The at-fault driver often claims unexpected or ‘black’ ice caused them to lose control. However, ice should be expected in the winter. People just need to drive more cautiously this time of year.

Most of our cases, year-round, involve a distracted driver. Cars just have too many distractions these days. For example, the infotainment system, telephone, GPS, and more. It is never a good time to be a distracted driver. However, in the winter it is even worse. If you are distracted when traffic slows, you may have less time to react. Our lawyers handle rear end accidents most frequently.
