In Indiana, the changing seasons can mean a drastic increase in unsafe conditions for drivers, and not just because roads are more slippery. It’s during the frost-and-thaw cycle of autumn and winter that the underlying structures of roads start to deteriorate, causing potholes, and water mains can burst due to freezing temperatures, causing further road damage as well as flooding and excess ice.
As if this isn’t enough, some drivers don’t sufficiently alter their driving habits to adjust to these changing conditions, which can make driving in winter considerably more dangerous than it has to be.
If you or a loved one is injured in these unsafe conditions and someone else is at fault, contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer could be the most important call you make. We have years of experience helping our clients sort out who is most responsible for an accident, and helping our clients get the care that they need and deserve.
