Once the winter slows and stops being snowy, cold, and icy, and the weather shifts to warm, rainy days, people may find themselves driving more frequently. With more drivers on the road, there is a bigger chance for distracted driving and auto accidents. In order to keep yourself and other drivers out there safe, here are some tips to prevent auto accidents.

Limit or Eliminate Distractions

With the windows down and the sun shining, it can be find yourself distracted by talking on the phone to make plans with friends or finding the perfect song on the radio. Taking your eyes off of the road can be dangerous and can lead to an accident. If you are involved in an auto accident and get hurt, you should contact an injury attorney in Illinois to help you dissect your case. Insurance companies may try to get statements from you, but don’t do anything until you talk to a Chicago auto accident lawyer. You may be entitled to compensation if someone hits you after being distracted while driving.

Don’t Drink and Drive

Obviously, drinking and driving is a recipe for disaster. Aside from DUI charges, you may also cause an accident that leads to serious injury or even death—it’s simple to avoid causing a drunk driving accident by simply refusing to drive after you’ve been drinking. However, if you are involved in a drinking and driving accident, contact an injury attorney in Illinois who can help you learn about what your rights are and how you can proceed with your case.

Drive In Accordance with Weather

Rainy weather can make for dangerous driving conditions, and sometimes it can be hard to tell until it’s too late. Slippery roads and limited visibility can cause trouble on the roads, which may lead to you needing the help of a Chicago auto accident lawyer. Avoid accidents caused by weather by making sure your windshield wiper blades are ready for increased use, slowing down when it’s rainy, and always using your headlights to make your vehicle more visible during rainstorms. By driving more cautiously during stormy weather, you may be able to prevent a costly and harmful accident.
