Many of us who have lived in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs are well aware of the dramatic weather changes that we are constantly battling. Just as we thought sweater season arrived, we might be pulling out our winter jackets. According to weather news reports, by the beginning of next, temperatures are expected to drop to the freezing mark. Chicago is also expected to get what is called graupel, a mix between hail and snow according to Chicago Tribune Breaking News. Along with these weather conditions, drivers face slick roads that can make driving conditions rough. When driving in these conditions, serious accidents have the potential to occur. If you or a loved one are involved in a vehicle accident, call a vehicle accident attorney as soon as possible to learn about your legal rights
