Throughout Minnesota, one of the biggest challenges that drivers face is the weather. Particularly in the winter, drivers must be extremely diligent in order to stay safe in the sleet, snow and ice. When they fail to do so, and the result is a serious motor vehicle accident, they can be held accountable for the harm caused. If you or a loved one has been injured because another driver failed to drive appropriately for the weather conditions, you should talk to an experienced lawyer before discussing your case with an insurance agent.
St. Paul Weather-Related Car Accident Attorneys
At the law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., in St. Paul, Minnesota, we exclusively practice personal injury law. We have handled car, truck and motorcycle accidents of all kinds, including those that involve severe weather conditions.
Negligent drivers may try to blame winter weather conditions for the accident. They may try, but we will make it clear that the accident would not have happened if they had taken sleet, snow and ice into account. In some cases, that means the negligent driver was driving too fast for conditions. In other cases, that means the negligent driver failed to take into account the increased distance necessary to stop for a stop light or stop sign, causing a rear-end collision. Slippery roads, black ice, heavy snow or pouring sleet are no excuses for negligence.
