MINNEAPOLIS CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS want you to know about WINTER DRIVING SKILLS.
The Minneapolis Minnesota Car Accident Lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team are experienced and successful in handling all types of injury cases resulting from car accident. They know that Minnesota highways are especially treacherous in winter with a much higher accident rate when Minnesota highways, streets and roads are covered with ice and snow. They offer the following reminders of special driving techniques that can reduce the risk of car accidents in winter driving conditions.
GOOD TIRES ARE IMPORTANT.
WINDOWS SHOULD BE TOTALLY CLEAR.
REDUCED SPEEDS ARE IMPORTANT.
ALLOW FOR EXTRA BRAKING AND STOPPING DISTANCES.
The MINNEAPOLIS CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS at the Schmidt Salita Law Team want you to know how important it is, if you have been in a car accident to call law enforcement to come to the scene. Minnesota Law requires law enforcement to report the accident to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. While the Crash Report filed by law enforcement can’t be offered into evidence, it becomes valuable to establishing fault between the drivers because the investigating officer is required to report the important facts as to how the collision occurred so that the officer can be a valuable witness later if necessary.
