Winter is upon us and the first large snow storm has hit the Midwest hard; bringing havoc to many states with nearly a foot and a half of snow in some states. In Indiana (IN) a driver of a semitrailer truck was killed after losing control while crossing a snow covered bridge.
Not all the accidents are strictly due to the conditions of the roads, but from drivers not taking the appropriate precautions while driving in bad weather. Just recently a school bus in Michigan (MI) carrying six students crashed into a tree that had fallen across the road.
The Virginia Personal Injury Lawyers' Perspective
As a Virginia (VA) personal injury lawyer I know that it is very common for these type of chain reaction wrecks or multicar accidents to occur here in Virginia (VA). What's worse is if you find yourself on the road with a semi truck in snowy conditions. Big rigs and snow just don't mix. If you do find yourself in this situation it is best to obtain the services of a personal injury lawyer. Having a lawyer on your side can safe guard you from insurance company delay tactics that could cost you your health and wages while they play their back and forth games.
