Weather-Related Car Accident Lawyer
Each year in the United States, weather is a factor in more than 1,300,000 accidents, which make up 23% of all motor vehicle accidents.
Rain, snow, ice, and fog often create unsafe road conditions for drivers in Missouri and Illinois. When a car is going too fast the driver may not have enough time to stop on a slippery road surface and may cause an automobile accident.
If you have been involved in an accident due to someone not driving appropriately for conditions, The Hoffmann Law Firm, L.L.C. can help you recover the compensation you need.
