Serious Accidents Occur Regardless of the Weather

It doesn’t really seem to matter what the weather is in Southern Idaho, accidents occur frequently. Indeed, in a recent study, it was found that the 100 most dangerous days of the year are in the summer when the roads should be at their best. Of course, accidents also happen in the cold and lengthy winters of Idaho.

It is important to understand that regardless of whether the road is icy or slick, a person can still be held at fault for causing an accident. In other words, merely because a person thinks that the accident was not their fault because there was ice on the road is incorrect. The Idaho Supreme Court has held that the failure to obey traffic laws, even in the presence of ice, is still negligence. In other words, if a driver encounters ice and slides into the back of the vehicle in front of it, it is not the ice’s fault but rather the driver who was driving too fast for the conditions. That person is liable as a matter of law for the accident.

This is important to remember since if a person if found to have violated a traffic rule at the time of an accident, the injured party does not have to prove that the at-fault party was negligent. Rather, they just need to show that a traffic law was violated.

People who are driving too fast on snowy roads, text messaging, talking on the phone, or just plain drowsy, may not be paying sufficient attention to the roads and are guilty of inattentive driving should they cause an accident.

Motor Vehicle Accidents Have Many Consequences
