Snow And Ice Cause Virginia Car Accidents

Snow and ice snarled traffic and caused a slew of car accidents across Virginia. When a car or truck accident involves weather conditions, who is at fault? This question can have significant implications if you are an injury victim as result of a car or truck accident in Virginia. Many times, the party who caused the accident will claim that it was an "Act of God" since the weather conditions were a contributing factor to the auto accident. In such cases, all of the facts must be examined to see if the accident was caused by negligence or if it happened because of unanticipated conditions that were not the result of anyone's negligence. An auto accident involving "black ice" is one of the most difficult auto accident cases. The driver who slid on the black ice will claim that he or she did nothing wrong and that the accident could not have been avoided. As an experienced Virginia personal injury attorney, I like to investigate such claims as soon as possible. In today's modern technology oriented world, one of the first things to look at is whether or not the driver was using a smart phone at the time of the accident. Cell phone use records can be obtained form the wireless carrier and then we can see if the driver was distracted. So don't assume that there is no claim for a personal injury in Virginia when snow or ice conditions are involved in a car accident. Francis P.
