Qualified Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Chicago Drivers

We’re all glad when winter ends. We welcome warmer weather and we’re anxious to go out. Yet, the weather change from winter to spring can cause environmental risks to your driving. Spring driving can mean slick roads from surprise rainstorms. These spring roads can cause accidents if drivers aren’t extremely careful. Here are some tips to help keep you safe while you’re out driving in the beautiful spring weather.

Take Your Time

One of the most common causes of car accidents during the spring is being in a rush. When you drive fast on wet roads, your tires aren’t able to properly grip the asphalt. This means you’ll have less reaction time if you suddenly have to stop. Slow down and take your time. If you are involved in a car wreck, call a car accident lawyer to get help. A car accident lawyer has experience in car wrecks, and he or she can help you determine what you should do next.

Speed limits are in place for a reason. In the springtime, the roads are often wet. Water in its own right can make a road extremely slick. With asphalt, water brings the oil to the surface which makes the road even slicker. It’s important that you drive the speed limit. Driving the speed limit or under the speed limit on wet roads is one of the easiest safety precautions that you can make during spring driving. You’ll have more time to stop and have less of a chance for your tires to hydroplane.

Replace Your Windshield Wiper Blades

Spring driving should mean new windshield wiper blades. Replace your windshield wiper blades each season so that they can keep you safe. Changing them each season means that you get the best chance of visibility. Visibility, or lack the thereof, is another major cause of accidents in the spring. If you’re involved in a car accident because of limited visibility, contact an accident attorney right away.

Drive at a Safe Distance

You’ve already learned that you should slow down because you can’t stop as fast when your tires can’t grip the asphalt. This is why you should drive at a safe distance. You need more time to stop when the road is wet. This is because there is a chance that your car will slide when you try to stop. One of the best ways to avoid a wreck is to drive at a safe distance away from the car in front of you.

Always Follow the Law

Whether it’s wearing your seatbelt or refraining from texting and driving, it’s important that you always follow the law when you’re behind the wheel. In Illinois, it is against the law to use a handheld device while you’re driving. For your own safety, especially when the roads are wet, it is imperative that you always wear your seatbelt and don’t text and drive.

If you’re hit by another driver that was texting and driving, call Malman Law right away.


What Should You Do if You’re in an Accident?

If you’re involved in an accident, the first thing that you should do is assess the situation. If you, your passenger, or people in the other vehicle are hurt, call 911 to get medical care. The safety of everyone involved is extremely important. Make sure that you call the police to get an accident report. The police can also help you get the insurance information from the other driver. If you have your smartphone with you, take pictures of the damage to your car and to the other vehicle. Contact your insurance company and the insurance company of the other driver to begin the claims process. Finally, contact Malman Law. We provide free consultations to people who are involved in a car accident. We will assess your case to determine if you have a claim. If you do, we can help you by dealing with the other party and insurance company on your behalf.

If your insurance company or the other insurance company asks you to sign a settlement agreement, call us before you sign. It’s important that you don’t sign over your legal rights or get less money than you deserve. We can help you determine if you should sign the settlement agreement.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
