What to Know About Winter Trucking Accidents

By October 7, 2021 No Comments

As the colder months approach, so does the harsh winter weather. Snowy, icy, and slushy roads are difficult to navigate.  Last winter Oklahoma saw unprecedented storms that brought with them numerous accidents, many serious, and wreaked havoc on our roads.

As personal injury attorneys, we’ve seen just how dangerous winter weather road conditions can be. According to the Federal Highway Administration:

  • 17% of all vehicle crashes happen in winter conditions.
  • There are 156,164 crashes annually due to icy roads.
  • Traffic accidents on snowy, slushy, or icy roads account for 24% of weather-related traffic accidents.
  • About 76,000 people get injured in traffic accidents during snowfall each year.

Trucking accidents can be devastating. Types of truck accidents can include negligence, product liability, and wrongful death. Many times, truck companies will deny fault or liability for a crash.  It is important to seek legal representation immediately following a trucking accident. A trucking accident injury attorney can help establish liability for your crash, collect evidence to strengthen your claim, and help ensure compensation is sought from the appropriate parties.
