(PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Travelers are facing long delays and dangerous road conditions during the always-busy Thanksgiving travel season thanks to a variety of storms across the country, reports NBC News(Thanksgiving weather: Delays pile up as millions of travelers cross their fingers, November 27, 2013). Regionally, there have been delays of up to two hours and LaGuardia, JFK, and Philadelphia’s airports, which in turn are causing delays elsewhere. Rainfall and snow are causing hazardous driving conditions across the region and already there was a fatal multiple-vehicle accident just outside of Philadelphia. One car hit a buildup of water and spun out of control, causing a chain reaction that resulted in one person dead and at least six injured.
Yet despite the bad news, meteorologists are claiming conditions are not nearly as bad as they could have been. The two storms that were predicted to overlap are not and the snow and rain is coming in patches, so traveling is not nearly as chaotic as once thought. Still, with snow and ice accumulating in some areas and winds expected to be as high as 40 miles per hour, drivers are still being cautioned to drive with extra care during the busiest traveling day of the year.
“Drivers especially should not allow reports of conditions being better than expected to cause them to let their guard down,” said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “Although conditions are not as bad as previously forecasted, there is still snow falling and water turning to ice, and travelers should be extra diligent given the number of people on the road. Already there has been one reported deadly accident and drivers should exercise caution to avoid there being more. In slippery conditions, it is easy to lose control of your vehicle, and with so many cars on the road, chances are you will crash into someone else.”
“Chances are, given the weather conditions and the number of travelers, there will be more accidents before the holiday arrives. If you or a loved one is unfortunate enough to be in one of these accidents, you should contact a lawyer right away to find out what to do and what your rights are. You may be eligible to be compensated for your losses, injuries, and medical expenses and you should consult with an expert who will make sure you do not pass up on any of the compensation to which you may be entitled.”
