(PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Even though winter is about to be a distant memory with the arrival of spring, there is still a likelihood that car accidents can occur due to the fluctuating temperatures and other adverse weather conditions. While temperatures have been rising, April has been known to have an occasional snow storm, as well as freezing rain and ice. For this reason, the PA car accident lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P. C., are now handling car accident cases related to adverse weather conditions in Berks County, PA, Schuylkill County, PA, and throughout Eastern and Central Pennsylvania.
Drivers of trucks, SUV’s, and other vehicles that have 4wd and that are thought to handle well in inclement weather can often be the most careless drivers because they do not account for the seriousness of slippery conditions. In fact, many people feel that the bigger the vehicle, the safer they will be, but, in reality, such vehicles may actually be more difficult to stop and steer. Even in ideal weather conditions, many people drive at unsafe speeds. When adverse weather conditions are encountered, driving safely is that much more difficult, and the chance for becoming involved in an accident is higher. Therefore, for anyone who has been in a car accident this past winter season, or during the change in seasons, due to the fault of another driver who failed to appreciate the adverse weather conditions existing at the time, they should get in touch with a car accident attorney immediately.
Consulting with an attorney for any car accident case is important because accidents can impact the victim’s life, as well as that of family members. Also, just because an “accident” took place during adverse weather conditions does not mean that another driver is not at fault. Again, what really may be the case is that another driver failed to appreciate the severity of the adverse weather conditions existing at the time. The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P. C., can investigate what happened and let a client know if he or she has a case against a driver who may have been responsible for causing the accident.

C., can help with a car accident case related to adverse weather conditions in Berks County, Schuylkill County, or throughout Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, please give them a call at 610-375-6131, or visit lieverhymanpotter.com for more information.
