Winter's one-two punch coming to the Carolinas

The Carolinas are expecting a one-two punch of snow and ice today through tomorrow that is rumored to make driving conditions very treacherous before President’s Day weekend. According to weather reports learned through ABC News.com, the region is under a winter storm watch which is expected to drop snow, then up to an inch of ice from Georgia through the mid-Atlantic states.

It is worth noting that people in Atlanta are taking no chances this time around after a winter storm paralyzed the city two weeks ago. Schools are closed today and tomorrow and the governor has issued a state of emergency for 45 counties in the path of the snow storm. 

For our readers in the Carolinas, it is worth reiterating the caution that must be used while on the road during (and after) the storm. Of course, staying off the road is the best way to avoid being in an accident. But if travel is necessary, reducing speed is a prudent way of limiting the likelihood of being in a crash. Additionally, it is an example of the care that is expected of drivers when driving conditions deteriorate.

If a driver fails to use such care (even in challenging conditions), he or she could be held liable for the accident that occurs, as well as the injuries and property damage that ensues. Injured parties could seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost wages.

Hopefully the incoming storm will not lead to many accidents or injuries; but if it does, an experienced personal injury attorney can help.
