Preventing Winter Car Accidents

Winter weather can be fun. Seeing a fresh blanket of snow on the ground can make even the grumpiest person feel like a kid again. But for all of its beauty, winter weather can also have devastating consequences, especially when snow and ice make roads more dangerous. Here are some tips you can use to avoid car accidents this winter.

Check Your Car
Before the weather turns chilly, make sure your car is ready for the coming winter. Schedule a car inspection and have your antifreeze, washer fluid, windshield wipers and battery checked. Replace anything that is past its prime.

Check the Forecast
Before you head out, check your local weather forecast so you will be prepared. If you have to travel during dangerous conditions, prepare by planning your route, including alternate routes, leaving earlier than you normally would and driving carefully.

Don’t Get Too Close
Remember that it is more difficult to bring your car to a stop on snowy or icy roads. Keep extra distance between you and the car ahead of you. It is also a good idea to reduce your speed. This can help you avoid the need to brake or swerve suddenly, which could help you avoid sending your car into a skid.

Say No to Distractions
Even during perfect weather, distractions can lead to serious car accidents. Talking or texting while driving, changing the station on the radio or having a heated discussion with passengers can all distract you from the road ahead. When winter weather is added to the mix, the dangers are increased. When you are driving, put your phone away and limit other distractions in the car.

Even if you are operating your vehicle safely, it is impossible to avoid all car accidents. If you have been the victim of a winter car accident, the offices of Conley Griggs Partin are here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
