BRR! It is cold out there.
Even though the official start of winter is December 21, 2008, the last weekend of November saw the first effects of a winter storm. In central Virginia, state troopers had to respond to 21 car accidents between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The automobile accident attorneys at our firm hope all drivers understand how to drive safely and avoid car accidents during the winter months. Because of black ice, snow, wind, early nightfall and low visibility, car accidents are much more likely to occur during this time of year.
When a winter storm hits in the November, instead of closer to winter, sometimes drivers will not be as prepared for the adverse conditions. The previous Sunday, there were just five auto accidents during the same period. That means that the early winter storm caused more than four times the car accidents than normal!
Virginia was hit hard by a winter storm that it would not normally receive during that time of year. How well will you be prepared if the weather calls for it? And if you do get into an accident because of the weather, will you need help to pay your medical bills if you get hurt or there are children’s injuries to deal with?
Our automobile accident attorneys recommend that all drivers be prepared for the worst when travelling to lower the chances of getting into a car accident. Be careful out there on the roads — light rain or burly blizzard — old man winter is the most reckless driver on the road.
