Minneapolis & St. Paul Car Accident Lawyers
The winter months tend to see a lot of car accidents because driving conditions can be slippery. When a driver goes too fast on a snow-covered road, hits ice even when going at a slow speed, or visibility is down to zero, accidents can and do happen.
However, there are times when accidents occur because of negligence in winter weather. For instance, a driver may have continued driving during white-out conditions when they should have pulled over, causing an accident. Another act of negligence is the individual driving at a high speed in slick conditions. The list can go on and on.
If you have been injured in a wintertime accident where there may have been snow and ice on the road, but the accident was due to negligence, you may have a personal injury claim. You can consult with one of our St. Paul personal injury attorneys to see if you have a case. Upon acceptance of your case, we will take action on your behalf to secure compensation that pays for the damages done to you.
Proving The Facts In Your Car Accident Case
When injured in an accident that occurred in bad weather conditions, the other side may argue that the conditions were slick and that no one was negligent in the accident. While the conditions may have been less than satisfactory for driving, it is still possible for an accident to happen due to neglect. These cases can be harder to prove, but they can be proven.
We will investigate the accident scene, look at police reports, and evaluate witness statements to see what really happened in the accident. We will use this information to build your case. We also utilize experts when needed to show how the weather conditions did not completely contribute to the accident or contribute to it at all.
Receive The Compensation You Deserve
When your personal injury lawyer proves your case, you can receive the compensation that you deserve. This compensation can include any or all of the following:
- Current and future medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Medical devices
- Current and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
The compensation eliminates the financial worry from the equation so you can focus on healing. Some injuries that individuals suffer can be as minor as broken bones and as severe as amputation. Whatever the injury, you can receive justice.

Driving in winter can be dangerous because slick conditions can cause accidents. However, there are times when the slick conditions could have been prevented. Because they were not prevented, an accident resulted. Other drivers drive recklessly in slick conditions because they feel that they are invincible or do not pay attention. Whatever the reason, the fact that someone has been allegedly negligent can give you a reason to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
