Staying safe while driving in winter weather conditions

It is winter, which means that drivers in Colorado will likely have to drive in snowy or icy conditions at some point. Most people who live in the state have experience driving in less-than-ideal conditions during portions of the year. Even drivers who have driven on icy roads should remember to stay safe.

An accident with an uninsured driver is salt in your wounds

Perhaps you were in the hospital when you learned that the driver responsible for your accident did not have auto insurance. This news may have felt as if someone crashed into you a second time. Colorado and nearly all other states in the country mandate auto insurance for every driver, so what happens when one driver without insurance breaks the law?

Distracted driving goes to a completely new level

Makeshift memorials to those who lost their lives in tragic motor vehicle accidents dot the landscape along Colorado roadsides. If you recall the painful day when you placed such a memorial for your loved one, you may have lingering questions about the cause of the accident that took the life of someone so precious to you. There is a high chance that authorities told you that distraction was a contributing factor to the accident.

What type of damages should you seek after a car accident?

Car accidents range in severity, and the people involved may have to deal with certain expenses and losses, even if the accident was not their fault. If you have injuries from an accident caused by another Colorado driver, you may not be able to manage the financial impact of this incident on your own. However, it is possible that you may have a rightful claim to compensation. 

Who's at fault for the injuries you suffered while skiing?

Skiing is one of the things that makes Colorado a popular vacation destination during the winter months. The many resorts across the state provide beautiful views and accommodations that draw thousands each year. With ski season rapidly approaching at resorts across the state, many people both here in the state and from other states are gearing up to hit the slopes.

Does winter weather driving have you feeling nervous?

With the winter months approaching, many Colorado residents will take precautions to prepare themselves for nasty weather. They may stock up on essentials and weather-proof certain areas of their property that need attention. While these measures can help you stay on top of your winter-living needs, you should also take time to review cold weather driving tips.
