Compassionate Guidance, Fearless Representation

Numerous car accidents in January were weather-related

Winter weather is tough to drive in. Most people would avoid it if they could. Unfortunately, work and family obligations mean that Maryland residents have to brave treacherous road conditions even when they would rather not. Sadly, quite a few car accidents happen during the winter months as a result. 

According to a recent report, in a 12-hour period, police were called to 118 car crashes throughout the state of Maryland. From 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 until 7 a.m. Sunday, Jan 13, police not only tended crash scenes but they also help nearly 500 other drivers who called for assistance. The roads were flat out terrible thanks to the massive storm hitting the East Coast.

Of those 118 collisions, it was not reported how many resulted in injuries or fatalities. Because these accidents were weather-related, victims of these incidents may feel that they do not have the right to seek compensation for their losses. This may not be the case. Weather may play a factor in auto collisions, but it is usually not the only factor. Distracted driving and driving too fast for road conditions often contribute to these accidents -- among other things. 

Maryland residents who have been involved in weather-related car accidents this winter season can turn to legal counsel in order to determine if they can seek relief for their losses through legal means. If legal action is found appropriate, it does not mean going to court is a given. One's attorney can first attempt to negotiate a fair settlement agreement before turning to litigation.
