Snow and Icy Road Conditions Lead to Accidents

This graph highlights Snow and Ice Auto Accident Statistics by separating them into several zones.  Kansas is in the highest risk zone for snow and ice related road accidents.
Snow and Ice Auto Accident Risk Zones: The map above illustrates where icy road crashes are most likely to occur due to winter storms and regular seasonal weather based on three seasons of winter storm data from the National Weather Service (NWS). The graph highlights how dangerous the midwest can be, with a large portion of Kansas in the highest risk zone. Fatal crashes can occur wherever snow or ice appears.

Kansas weather is unpredictable and hazardous conditions are common.  This does not mean the “rules of the roads” or the rules governing accidents in ice or snowstorms change.  If you’ve been injured, why should you be stuck with the bills if you are not responsible for causing the accident?  We are committed to helping those who are in this position receive fair and just compensation for snow and ice injury accidents.

One key difference in ice and snow storm accidents, if a serious injury occurs that requires an on-scene investigation, evidence may only be available for a short period of time before it melts away, covered by additional snowfall, or is swept away up by road crews.  An attorney who is experienced handling car wreck claims relating to snow and ice is familiar with the special considerations that might be necessary to support your claim.  Our clients benefit from the knowledge our team of attorneys have from representing over 2,000 clients in auto accident claims.

Accident rates on highways and roads in Kansas noticeably increase when icy conditions occur.  Traffic accidents caused by ice often result in a wide range serious injuries, and in the worst cases death.
