What should I do after a car accident resulting from icy roads?


Here in Utah, we live in the mountains. We’re used to snow and ice. Sometimes car accidents due to black ice become a dangerous threat.

Every now and then, we’ll get a call from someone that was in a car crash where they were the driver, they lost control on icy road, spun out, hit a guardrail, maybe rolled, and unfortunately ended up with some pretty serious injuries. In one case like that, after looking at the particular section of the road to see if there were any defects, we determined the driver had been going too fast for weather conditions.

Because it was his fault, we couldn’t bring a claim for him, but because Utah requires no-fault insurance, he was still able to get personal injury protection, or PIP benefits under Utah law, which allows for $3,000 of medical expenses, some wage benefit, and household services.

Single car crashes are challenging cases, but it’s always worth talking through the issues with a lawyer to make sure you make the right decisions. Give me a call. Let’s take a minute to talk.
