Prepping For Winter

Although it might feel far away, winter will be here before we know it.  In preparation for the season, PennDOT is sharing information outlining our state's plan for winter weather services.  A part of this plan involves informing our state's residents about preparation and winter weather warning alerts.  PA residents can access http://www.511PA.com for information related to plow truck locations, as well as the last time particular roads were cleared of snow.  Last winter, there were over 400 accidents across the state. This resulted in a fatality and over 200 injuries.  

Of course, the best tip is that if you don't have to travel in winter weather, don't!

However, despite our best efforts, sometimes an accident is unavoidable.  If an accident does occur, it's important to know that Pennsylvania is a comparative negligence state.  Comparative negligence simply means that if your negligence contributed to the accident, your damages will then be reduced by the amount of your negligence.  So please take every precaution to decrease the chances of contributing to an accident, and properly prepare your vehicle and yourself for the conditions ahead. 

Some preventative maintenance and exercising a little caution can go a long way in preventing an accident from occurring in the first place, and protecting you from liability.  However, if you are injured in a vehicle accident this winter please allow Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr to review your claim by calling our Altoona, PA law firm at 814-946-4100.
