Weather all over the country, and in fact all over the world, has been extreme over the
past several months. Winter storms in the United States and blazing temperatures in

expected that drivers take reasonable precautions as well. Generally, it is legally
required that you drive appropriately for the conditions, and if it is judged that a driver

Thus, an important part of your preparations for any season should be making sure that
you know how to drive in that season’s bad weather. Also, slow down in poor weather,

Another important preparation is to find a Dallas accident attorney. With an accident
attorney, you can set your mind at ease knowing that if other drivers are less cautious
about the weather than you, you will have someone to call. You will be able to make the
driver at fault cover the costs that they incurred through the accident, whether it is
repairs for your vehicle or medical bills resulting from the crash. If you have suffered a
poor weather accident and believe the other party is at fault, contact Kirkendall Dwyer
LLP. We would be happy to represent your case.
