Injured in an Accident Caused by Ice and Snow?
In the winter, ice and snow can make Connecticut roadways very dangerous. Auto accidents are common. If you have been in a winter weather accident, you may think that you have no recourse and that you will have to cover the costs on your own. However, there may be opportunities to recover compensation with the help of an experienced lawyer.

We have recovered millions of dollars for people who have suffered serious injuries. If there is any way to get you compensation for medical bills and other costs, you can be certain that we will find it.
Who Caused the Winter Weather Accident?
Often, people involved in car accidents in the winter think that there is nobody to blame. That is not necessarily the case. If you were hit by another car, the driver may have been driving too fast for conditions and should be held accountable.
Intersection accidents are common in the winter, because one car will slide through a stop sign or a red light and cause a collision. The slippery roads are not entirely to blame. If the other driver had been driving slower or had braked sooner, the crash may have been prevented.
Even in single-car accidents in the winter, there may be opportunities to recover compensation. Perhaps the road was poorly designed, causing an unnatural accumulation of ice or snow. Our lawyers will review your case to determine who was liable and we will take action to get you money to cover your bills.
In addition, we handle auto accidents caused by snow plows, ice trucks and other municipal vehicles that are out during the winter season.
