Dealing with Summer Weather Accidents

Even when the weather is beautiful, there are many accidents along the Dixie Highway through Louisville. Add in some inclement summer weather and the accident numbers can climb even higher. Here are some tips for dealing with summer weather accidents along the Dixie in Kentucky.

The first couple of downpours each summer are usually the most dangerous for people driving on the Dixie as they get used to driving in the heavy rain again. Even in the summer months, you can be exposed to fog in Kentucky. High winds, heavy rains, wet leaves and other debris from a summer storm can cause a lot of problems for drivers.

During a summer storm, be sure to drive slower than the posted speed limit. Doing so will give you more time to safely bring your vehicle to a stop. Leave extra room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Before heading out on a summer road trip, be sure to have your car serviced so it is ready for what the summer months bring.

Should you be involved in an accident during a summer storm, remain in your car until you are absolutely sure it is safe. Call the police should there be damage or injuries to any property or people involved in the accident. If it is safe, take pictures of the scene, the damage to the vehicles and the conditions of the road. Should the weather conditions allow it, exchange information with all other drivers involved in the accident. This includes names, insurance information, contact information and vehicle registration.

Be sure to discuss the accident with an experienced personal injury attorney before you talk with any insurance company agent. A personal injury attorney will help you determine the best course of action.
