Icy roads and distracted drivers are a dangerous mix

Car accidents can devastate entire families, especially when the accident is fatal. We are in the midst of brutal winter weather here, so drivers need to take appropriate precautions as they venture through the snowy and slippery streets. A driver who is distracted on these roads can easily lose control and plow into another vehicle.

We know that you probably aren't prepared to have to deal with intensive medical care and time off of work. After all, you probably just got done buying holiday gifts or you might still have more to purchase. Having to take a financial hit right now might devastate you and your family.

Taking action to recoup some of the money you had to spend because of the accident might help you to get back on track. A successful claim for compensation could help you to cover lost wages, medical bills and more.

Sadly, many other drivers on the roads don't think about how their actions can affect the other people on the roads. Instead, they might think that texting, making a phone call, eating or putting on makeup is more important than paying attention to the road. When that occurs and an accident happens, that driver can be held liable for the effects of the crash.

If you were harmed by a driver who was driving in a reckless manner or who was distracted, we can help you hold that driver accountable through the civil court system. We will consider the circumstances of the accident and investigate what happened. From there, we can determine how to wage our battle.
