What Should I Do If I’m in an Icy Road Accident?

Icy roads are dangerous to drive on and can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles. Driving on a snow-packed road can clog up the tread on your tires, reduce your vehicle’s traction, and cause other driving challenges.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, icy road accidents are so common that 22% of all accidents in the U.S. are weather-related, with 24% of this number attributed to snow, sleet, and ice. If you have been injured in an icy road accident in St. Louis, after the crash, it’s essential to take the following steps:

  • File a police report
  • Get examined by a doctor
  • Gather evidence from the accident
  • Collect copies of your medical and police report, past medical reports, and evidence of damages related to the accident (medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, etc.)
  • Consult an experienced St. Louis Car Accident Lawyer about your case

Having a St. Louis Icy Road Accident Lawyer by your side during the claims process for your case offers protection from the other party’s insurance company, ensures that all available options for recovering compensation are identified, and increase the odds of recovering a high Missouri icy road accident settlement for your accident-related harm and losses.

Missouri Winter Driving Tips

Between 2007-2016, on average, there were 9,612 annual car accidents in Missouri caused by icy road conditions. Most accidents are preventable and caused by driver error, which begs the question, why is the rate of winter accidents in St. Louis so high? During the winter, it’s essential to follow the following tips to reduce the chances of getting into an icy road accident in Missouri:

  • Check your tire pressure regularly – tire pressure drops when the weather drops
  • Examine the tread on your vehicle’s tires – driving on bald tires can cause you to lose control of your vehicle and decrease your ability to come to a complete stop
  • Check your windshield wipers – if your windshield wipers aren’t working properly, and your windows are fogged up, this can limit your visibility while driving
  • Don’t speed – when driving on icy roads, it’s essential to drive slowly, ideally 10 mph below the speed limit, and proceed with caution when changing lanes, merging into traffic, and driving next to other vehicles
  • Don’t stop when going uphill – attempting to stop on an icy road could cause your vehicle’s brakes to lockup, slide backward on the icy pavement, or possibly cause another vehicle to hit you

Unfortunately, not every bad weather accident can be prevented by taking precaution; if another driver’s carelessness is responsible for your accident, and you suffered harm and losses, Missouri’s driving laws and statute of limitations allow car accident victims to file icy road accident claims in St. Louis for up to five years from the date that an accident occurs.
