While it may be amusing to hear stories about how Wisconsin residents have found that cheese is being spread on the roads, along with traditional road salt, icy or freezing roads are really no joke and require diligent attention. Especially since a snow-covered road is not the main culprit for auto accidents in the Madison, Wisconsin area, the more dangerous culprit is ‘black ice’ or ice that is indistinguishable from wet or rainy roads.
Auto Accident Types
The three main types of car accidents include the following:
- Distracted Driver
- Defective Vehicle
- Defective Roadway
No matter which type of accident you are involved in, contacting an experienced Madison accident attorney can mean the difference between returning successfully to your pre-accident life and activities or not.
Gathering the right evidence means working for a settlement you are happy with from the insurance company. It can be especially crucial if any sort of defective vehicle or roadway was the cause. Consequently, remember that when you are driving on black ice; there are no safe speeds.
