Common Causes of Missouri Winter Accidents

One of the top causes of death in Missouri are car accidents, but winter weather accidents are particularly severe. On average, 21% of car accidents in the United States are caused by winter weather conditons, such as snow, sleet, and ice, which cause or contribute to several types of collisions, such as rear-end accidents, sideswipe collisions, rollover accidents, and more. The most common causes of winter weather car accidents in Missouri include:

  • Black ice – hitting a patch of black ice on the highway or a dimly lit road can cause a number of catastrophic injuries, including head injuries, concussions, and more
  • Decreased visibility – blowing snow, ice, and other vision-reducing weather conditions are a leading cause of car accidents
  • Hydroplaning – when rain or snow becomes trapped in a vehicle’s tires and causes it to “spin out” from reduced traction. Hydroplaning can lead to off-the-road crashes, sideswipe accidents, and other severe collisions
  • Speeding – when there is snow and ice on the road, it’s essential to slow down and drive at least 10 mph below the speed limit. This is especially true during the winter when speeding is more likely to cause your car slide, spin out, or rollover due to slick pavement and reduced traction

Most accidents are preventable, and the majority of winter weather accidents are no exception. If roads are slick with rain, snow, sleet, or ice, even if you think your car can handle the conditions, it’s essential to drive slow, stay alert, make sure that your tires are in good condition (properly aired, adequate traction), and keep your distance from other drivers on the road to decrease the odds of an accident occurring. Other Missouri winter weather car accident tips include checking your windshield wipers, using de-icer, installing winter tires, and making sure that your vehicle’s brakes are maintained and working correctly.

Missouri Winter Car Accident Claims

No two accidents are the same, and the amount of compensation that each Missouri car accident settlement includes varies significantly. Factors that affect the value of a victim’s car accident claim include whether the other driver is solely at-fault, if the accident was reported right away, whether the victim suffered injuries and possesses proof of their injuries, and several other elements.

If you were injured in a winter accident, and are struggling with medical bills, property damage expenses, or other damages related to the accident, you could be entitled to compensation with help from a St. Louis Winter Accident Lawyer. An experienced car accident lawyer can assess the details of your case, make sure that your claim falls under Missouri’s statute of limitations, develop a compelling claim for your case, and negotiate for the highest winter weather accident settlement for your harm and losses.

Typically, most Missouri winter accident claims settle within a matter of months, but in more severe situations, it can longer to reach a satisfactory settlement or require a lawsuit, especially in wrongful death cases.
