It isn’t easy to navigate through the beautiful state of Washington during wintertime. That’s why here at Bernard law group, we often urge our readers and clients to slow down as the temperature drops.
An accident that happened in Snohomish County is serving as an example how important is for drivers to stay focused and avoid distraction, intoxication, or drowsy driving. And while this particular accident is still under investigation and hasn’t been associated with any particular factor, we’re reminded that the consequences are quite similar to the consequences of accidents caused by the factors we mentioned in this paragraph. That’s partially why we often report on these accidents as our readers and clients are able to learn about certain activities and types of situation they may find themselves in and thus, they will be able to learn just what they should do or avoid doing to prevent accidents.
