Can I still recover if I was hurt in a winter car crash?

Now that the winter season has arrived in the Chicagoland area, the roads and highways tend to be slippery, making it easier for cars to collide. If you or someone you know was hurt in a car crash, contact a car accident attorney immediately.

In Illinois, drivers have the responsibility to drive with reasonable care. Most drivers follow this rule by traveling the speed limit and not following other cars too closely. However, during the winter months, these techniques may not be reasonable enough. Illinois law actually requires drivers to adjust their driving according the conditions they are driving in. If a road is icy, it is expected that every driver will reduce speed and give him or herself more room to brake.

If you were injured in a winter car crash, do not automatically assume that the weather was the only reason for the crash. Based on the facts, your attorney may be able to determine that the driver’s actions, not the weather, caused the crash. While the weather can definitely play a factor in the outcome of your claim, every driver still has the responsibility to drive carefully under all circumstances. If that driver wasn’t careful, he or she will be responsible for the injuries caused.
