Icy Roads Increase the Risk of Car Accidents in Philadelphia

Posted By Law Offices of Thomas J. Murphy, Jr. || 30-Jan-2014

There has been an increase in the number of serious car accidents in the Philadelphia area due to the freezing temperature and icy roads. The recent accidents include on I-76, on Martin Luther King Drive, and in other areas of the state. Some roads, streets and highways have been closed due to impassable conditions. If you have been involved in a collision due to icy roads and have suffered an injury, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Is someone at fault when the roads are icy? A vehicle may have been travelling too fast for road conditions, or a city road should have been shut down if the surface was so icy that it was impossible to navigate safely.

This has been a long winter, and far colder than many we have experienced. Even though Philadelphians are familiar with cold winters, it is rare that the roads are this dangerous for drivers. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, get in touch with a personal injury lawyer that can review the facts in the case and advise you about seeking a settlement.
