Advice in Colorado Car Accident Claims – Norton Personal Injury Law Offices

i-caraccidentsColorado boasts some of the most beautiful weather in the country. Unfortunately it is also home to some of the most unpredictable weather in the United States. Even Colorado citizens who have lived here all of their lives can be caught off guard by a sudden snowfall or thunderstorm. When this happens, severe automobile accidents can occur causing a variety of injuries and disabilities. While  Mother Nature is not going to pay your medical bills, there may be a situation when your accident could have been prevented. When this occurs, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and for any damages that have occurred as a result of negligence.

Road Maintenance:

County and state officials have a responsibility to keep the roadways and bridges adequately maintained in order to keep drivers safe. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable. Pot holes, insufficient shoulders and inadequate bridge supports may all contribute to an accident during bad weather. If your accident was due to inadequate roadway maintenance, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries.

Unsafe or Reckless Driving:

When Colorado weather turns bad, drivers are required to exercise extreme caution while driving. Unfortunately, not every driver heeds these warnings and reckless drivers are responsible for numerous accidents every years. When you factor snowy or icy road conditions into the equation—it is a recipe for disaster.

Large Commercial Vehicles:

During times of extreme weather, drivers of large commercial vehicles have a responsibility to ensure the safety of vehicles around them. Unfortunately, drivers who are overworked and suffering from driver fatigue may put everyone at risk. If you are involved with a large commercial vehicle during bad weather, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries due to their negligence.
