For most drivers across the country, it’s getting to be the most wonderful time of the year: testing the defroster, heater, and starter, strapping on the snow tires, stockpiling scrapers, antifreeze, and a healthy dose of caution for driving the roads of the winter wonderland. All but gone is the ease of warm, open roads and windows, the memories put into winter storage. Statistics show us that a different breed of auto accident occurs during the winter months. Soon, all the seemingly immutable rules of driving will change: slowing to a stop behind another vehicle might easily lead to a fender bender, given the right circumstances. Hazardous road conditions, lack of visibility, loss of control, and overstressed, failing engines all add to the hazards of being on the road. In winter climates, these conditions, unique to the season, translate into a specific personal injury law practice for auto accident lawyers. Attorneys in these communities grapple with issues of fault while factoring in issues such as ice and snow.
Thankfully, Los Angeles auto accidents are not doomed to suffer the same fate. While the Minnesota white-out occupies a prominent place on the evening news, outside the window the climate and roads remain temperate. Even so, clearly the Los Angeles community is subject to unique factors in its driving conditions, such as the rains that make for slick roads. Smog, haze, blinding sunshine, congestion and other factors particular to this part of California affect driving conditions and up the accident potential. It is all too easy to overlook the driving conditions in our own communities and their unique nature: we are so acclimated to them. But think of us suddenly transplanted, car and all, into an Minnesota blizzard! What a fish out of water!
As this is the case, when you have to poor fortune to become a victim in a car accident in Los Angeles, it is only logical that an auto accident lawyer from Minnesota simply lacks the experience to be effective in presenting your case. When seeking an attorney, some of the most important qualities – character, trust, integrity – transcend geography. However, other equally important qualities depend on time and place. To succeed with your case, you need an expert Los Angeles car accident attorney with the experience, day-in and day-out, of our highways and byways, and our driving rules and regulations. It only makes sense.
