Driving safe during spring weather

| Apr 14, 2015 | Uncategorized |

Driving in Nebraska during the spring can be treacherous when drivers are not prepared for wet weather conditions. According to AAA, 1.2 million car accidents take place each year in the United States as a result of wet weather. To avoid accidents, drivers should make sure that their vehicles are ready to withstand heavy rains by checking tire tread and maintaining safe driving habits.

People who are planning to drive in the spring should make sure that their car’s tires will be able to handle a downpour. Checking the condition of tires means ensuring that the tread is deep enough. When a tire’s tread is too worn out, the car could hydroplane on a wet road and cause the driver to lose control over its steering.

Safe driving habits are just as important as the condition of tires during heavy rains. A person who is driving in wet weather conditions should also make sure to adjust their following distance to at least four seconds. If a car begins to skid on wet pavement, it is important for the driver to remain calm and continue to steer in the direction they would like to go. Hitting the brakes during a skid could result in a driver losing even more control over the vehicle.

A person who has been involved in a car accident that was another driver’s fault may be able to claim monetary compensation from the responsible party. An attorney may be able to help an injured victim in this situation file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for the economic and noneconomic losses that were incurred.

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver & Spier Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O."

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
