Winter Car Accident Lawsuit
In Ohio, winter weather can be a serious factor when driving any vehicle on any type of road or highway. Driving in Ohio winter's can be very stressful. There could be ice patches you don’t see (black ice is especially bad), landing you in a ditch and thick patches of snow that just make your tires spin. You try to be as careful as you can, paying attention to the road and not driving too fast, but what if the person behind you isn’t being as careful in their driving and you are seriously injured in a winter car accident? Besides exchanging insurance information and calling the authorities, you should also consider any injuries even if they are slight. Sometimes injuries will not manifest themselves until weeks, months or even years later. Getting a proper medical check up and treatment would be wise. Also, consulting one of the experienced attorneys at the Eshelman Legal Group would also be a good choice.
Many people may not think to call a legal professional because they figure poor weather was to blame and you can’t sue Mother Nature. But according to the attorneys at the Eshelman Legal Group, you can. And that said, be wary of the other driver’s insurance company who may say the accident was unavoidable due to the weather so it does not reflect any negligence on the driver’s part.
But negligence can be a complicated matter and when it comes down to it, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced lawyer that handles car accident injuries (during the winter season or any other time) to see if they can help you. In the eyes of the law, drivers are to operate their vehicles in a reasonable manner as other people would under the same circumstances. “Reasonable”... What does "reasonable" mean? The Eshelman Legal Group understands the meaning in light of the laws pertaining to personal injuries.
Here is a good example...on a nice, sunny, summer day, if you were driving your car at or near the speed limit, that would most certainly be reasonable. But what if someone was driving just as fast, not taking into consideration the snow, poor visibility, rain or the occasional ice patch on the road and they plow into the back of your vehicle, causing you and others in your vehicle personal injuries? Or what if someone rear ends you at a stop light because they couldn’t stop in time since they were driving too close to you to begin with? Neither case is reasonable and an attorney from the Eshelman Legal Group may be able to prove it for you so you receive the compensation you are due.
Driving too closely to the car in front of you and driving too fast for road conditions are not the only two circumstances that an attorney may prove negligence of in court. Other driving situations deemed improper are:
- Driving while travel advisories have said not to drive
- Failure to use turn signals
- Failure to use headlights
- Failure to use windshield wipers
- Not slowing down to turn
Of course, the Eshelman Legal Group would like to remind you that no matter what the weather...NEVER text while driving.
