Southerners Brace For Snow, But St. Louis Residents Shouldn’t Take Bad Weather Lightly

Every year we’re used to hearing news stories about how a snow storm has struck in the South, and they’re bracing for the worst. According to a recent article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, schools and businesses shut down, gridlock ensued on highways and streets, and there was a run on milk and bread in almost every store.

These types of stories might make us chuckle, here in the North. We’re used to snow and ice, and when the conditions in St. Louis aren’t good, most of us are pretty careful to watch our speeds and travel slowly. Even so, there are still many factors that lead to more and more car crashes every winter, here in St. Louis.

For some people, they’re over-confident when they drive, believing that they can manage their vehicles better in snow than most others. Alcohol continues to be a problem, even in bad weather. As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we wish that everyone would practice extreme caution during the winter months. However, that doesn’t always happen.

If you or someone you love is hurt in a car accident because of the poor decisions of someone else, it’s important to contact your St. Louis personal injury attorney right away. You’ll learn about your rights as a victim, and an attorney will help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
