Inclement and Winter Weather Accidents

Snow Accidents Throughout Colorado

Snow is a common element for drivers in Denver, where the city sees some 57 inches of snow per year. Although winter weather is nothing new for many local drivers, it is nevertheless hazardous for anyone on the road.

Snow is particularly dangerous because it makes roads slick and visibility poor. These factors can be a recipe for disaster, especially when combined with negligent drivers and/or roads in disrepair. Whether it is because of a speeding driver who spins out after slamming on the brakes or a pothole that becomes hard to spot in a storm, accidents can and do happen when snow falls. After an accident a Denver inclement weather accident lawyer at our firm can investigate on your behalf to determine if you have a personal injury claim. 

State law requires all motorists in Colorado to have tires that meet a minimum tread standard in order to drive during winter months. Drivers who do not meet this requirement and are later involved in an accident may be legally liable as a result.

Liability for Hazardous Weather Crashes in Denver

When accidents happen, a number of different people and entities may be legally responsible for the crash. That includes negligent drivers – and, sometimes, their employers – as well as defective car and parts manufacturers, construction crews that leave roads in dangerous conditions and anyone else who creates a hazard that leads to a collision.

Of course, no one can be blamed for bad weather. Still, any Denver inclement weather accident lawyer will tell you that accidents often happen in inclement weather because the conditions were made worse by others. 

Anyone who gets behind the wheel of a car in Colorado owes everyone else on the road a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. That means maintaining a safe speed during bad weather, keeping a safe distance between vehicles, using headlights when visibility is poor and making sure that the vehicle’s tires are suitable for the conditions.

A driver who does not live up to this responsibility is considered negligent and legally responsible for any accidents that happen as a result. 

Similarly, car manufacturers are expected to produce vehicles that are safe to drive. Snow and other inclement weather often exposes defects that a vehicle’s owner never knew existed, sometimes with tragic consequences. When those defects cause accidents, the manufacturer is likely to be liable.

How a Denver Bad Weather Accident Lawyer Can Help

To prove liability, you have to be able to identify those responsible for the crash, establish that they failed to live up to a certain legal responsibility and show that this failure caused you to be injured. A Denver inclement weather accident lawyer at Levine Law can help.

Our attorneys know how to build the strongest possible case by gathering all of the available evidence and clearly establishing legal responsibility. Police records, witness statements, physical evidence from the scene of the crash and extensive medical records are often crucial in car accident cases. 

The earlier you seek the assistance of an attorney, the sooner the lawyer can begin building your case. Because insurers often look to rush low-ball settlement offers immediately after a crash happens, it is vital to get the advice of a lawyer before considering a settlement.

Our law firm is pleased to serve clients throughout Colorado, including in Denver, Colorado Springs, Ft. Collins and Loveland. Call us at 303-333-8000 or contact us online to speak with a Denver bad weather accident lawyer.
