Snow is in the forecast for this weekend reminding us that the cold weather season is not over just yet. Snow-covered roads, ice storms, and subzero temperatures have a way of bringing the driving school basics out of all of us. As always, with the cold comes unique road conditions such as snow, sleet, and fog. Wet and cold roads mean unsafe driving conditions. Some winter road hazards however, appear long before the snow starts to fall, and they can make roads just as slick. One particularly dangerous threat is black ice. You may be surprised to learn that in the winter, most weather-related car accidents are not caused by the inches of snow but rather by unseen road conditions such as black ice. It’s invisible, but potentially deadly. Black ice forms when moisture freezes in a thin layer on a road’s surface. It’s black because it’s the same color as the road, making it hard to spot from behind the wheel. But not all black ice occurs naturally.
Who is responsible for car accidents involving black ice? Accidents caused by black ice can be terrifying. They can spin you out of control and slam you into another car or object. Maybe you were part of a multi-vehicle accident from another driver hitting black ice. Whatever the case, if you sustained an injury, you should know your rights. When filing a claim, Spada Law Group will review all the facts of the case. We will look at the circumstances and determine what may have caused the accident in addition to the icy conditions. This may include another driver. Often, an accident that happened because of snow, ice, or rain is attributed to a driver because he or she was driving too fast for the road conditions at the time.
