We have had an unusually high amount of snowstorms here in Pennsylvania this winter. Consequently, the number of potential road-related accidents will also increase. Are you prepared to effectively and safely drive in the winter? Pennsylvania's driving safety website, JustDrivePA.org, has posted some tips to keep you and other travelers safe on the road this winter.
Some important things to consider, as listed on their website, may be second nature to most native Pennsylvanians, but all the tips are worth checking out to see if there is anything you're missing! Things you may wish to double-check in your car are: making sure your car's radio works properly, making sure your wiper blades don't streak, and having an emergency kit in your car. Some things you should put in that emergency kit include a flashlight, jumper cables, blankets, and a first aid kit.
Winter car accidents are frightening, expensive, and time-consuming. These accidents may also result in injuries that are extensive, painful, and long-lasting. If you suffered an injury due to a car accident caused by another, it might be time to consult with an attorney. Attorney Doug Stoehr is a personal injury lawyer serving western and central Pennsylvania.
