Auto Accidents on Slippery Winter Roads in New Hampshire

In the winter New Hampshire roads can be covered with snow and ice. When this happens, there is a dramatic increase in winter related automobile accidents. The question may be, if you sustain a personal injury, do you have a case?

Just because you get into an auto accident does not mean you automatically have case. It is necessary to prove that the person that hit you was legally at fault. This can be complicated by slippery roads, allowing the other driver to claim that his or her loss in the control and the resulting accident was caused by the slippery conditions, not negligence. In these cases, it is critically important to make sure that the police are called to investigate the accident. If you noticed that the driving on the part of the other driver was negligent and not winter related, i.e. speeding texting swerving, etc. make sure that the police officer is aware of that. Make sure your insurance company is aware of that. Take photos of the tire marks in the snow, if possible.

There is a strong chance if you do not develop your case early and properly, you could lose due to the slippery road defense. If in doubt, contact a New Hampshire Personal Injury attorney to assist you in early the process.
