Charlottesville Personal Injury Lawyer Comments On Ice And Snow Auto Accidents

Charlottesville and Albemarle and the surrounding areas are expecting winter weather tomorrow with snow and ice in the forecast. As an experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer and attorney, I typically see an uptick in calls about car accidents, truck wrecks, and slip and fall injuries after the area experiences winter weather. The main question for an experienced personal injury attorney is whether the weather caused the accident, or was human error a factor. Human error or the failure to use ordinary care can be considered negligence and negligence can give rise to a personal injury case. For instance, if a driver fails to slow down in the face of adverse winter weather when a careful driver would slow down, the failure to slow down can be considered negligence if it is the cause of the accident. Similarly, the entry to a store may have been covered by snow during the storm, but if the owner fails to clear the snow after the storm has stopped and someone falls as a result, it may be negligence. From these examples, it should be obvious that every case depends on the particular facts of that case. If you are injured as a result of an accident, please call me to see if the facts of your case have merit. Francis P.
