Spring is in full effect, and that usually means more and more cars are emerging from the woodwork and hitting the road. As Charlotte personal injury lawyers, we understand that not all car accidents are your fault. If you’ve been in a car accident that isn’t your fault, our personal injury lawyers at Hunter & Everage will fight for your case. But generally speaking, we wanted to outline some safe driving tips that you can implement year-round to minimize your chances of getting in an accident.
Watch for Potholes & Puddles
Now that winter is over, you’ll likely see a new set of potholes on the roads. While it’s best to avoid potholes and large puddles as they may damage your car, it’s best not to swerve intensely to avoid them. You may end up hitting another car or end up in a different lane. Inflating your tires properly can reduce the damage of any potholes.
Share the Road
More people will be on the road when the weather gets warmer. Watch out for motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists; they deserve to use the road just as much as cars do.
Be Careful in the Rain
April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring unsuitable driving conditions. When it rains a lot, it’s no secret that the roads become much slicker and harder to navigate. Even the smallest amount of mist or rain can mix with oil and grease on the road and create slippery driving conditions. Always drive with caution and use your windshield wipers when necessary.
Driving in the spring brings a new set of issues to consider when you hit the road. If you’ve been in a car accident and think a lawsuit is necessary, our Charlotte personal injury lawyers want to hear your case and fight for the compensation you deserve. Contact Hunter & Everage Law Firm today.
