Vehicle Safety Tips:
Rain, snow, fog, sleet or icy pavement increase the hazards of driving. Slow down and be especially alert when driving in adverse conditions. The small amount of driving time reduced by speeding does not justify the risk.
Motorists are expected to use a reasonable amount of care on the road. If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident due to someone else’s lack of care-or negligence- you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries or other damages. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the attorneys at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. as soon as possible.
