Been In An Accident In San Antonio?
Black Ice and Car Accidents in San Antonio
"Black ice" is actually a bit of a misnomer: it is transparent and unseen by the human eye.
One slip of the hand on the steering wheel over black ice in San Antonio can cause you to lose complete control
of your vehicle, resulting in car accidents, medical bills, and loss of a vehicle. The Federal
Highway Administration released a publication stating that between 2004 and 2013, over 150,000
car wrecks happened on average every year due to icy conditions.
While ice remains invisible, there are still ways to be smart and recognize the signs to avoid
. While most people are aware freezing occurs at 32 degrees Fahrenheit or less, another large
contributor to black ice is rain. If it has been raining recently or there is snow on the ground
in San Antonio,
there is a good chance that black ice is out and you should drive carefully to avoid a traffic
collision or ending up in a ditch.
Most newer model cars these days come with weather thermometers which are helpful in determining
whether black ice is a factor while driving. For those of us with older cars, if you live in a
colder geographic area, check the weather before you leave on a trip with your local news
station or mobile app. Ice related auto accidents cause tragic accidents that can best be
avoided by keeping a steady hand on the wheel (no sudden movements, jerking the steering
wheel, fast lane changes, etc) But our most important tip is if you do get in an accident
due to ice, see a doctor because injuries from car accidents such as whiplash can affect
your day to day life. Even if it doesn't hurt immediately, the pain really sets in the day
after. Drive safely this winter!
Steps to take after a Car Wreck in San Antonio
It is very important that any person who suffers a serious car accident seek compensation for their injuries. In San Antonio, any victim who suffers pain, loss, anguish and suffering due to a fault that is not their own will be given compensation from the responsible party.
The first step after a car accident is to be treated for any injuries obtained at the time of the accident. Even if you do not feel any pain, you may be in shock and wont feel it till the following day. Whiplash is a common problem and can cause scar tissue if not treated. So be sure to seek medical attention in San Antonio whether you are hurt or not. Don't get stuck having to pay for medical bills out of pocket!
It is essential to also find out the kind of losses that incur and report those to your insurance company. There are loss of wages due to having to miss time from work. Other losses may be related to out-of-pocket expenses, treatment costs, fixing your car, rental cars, consultation fees. Don't get stuck with having to pay any of this either! Optimum Health Care can assist you with everything you need to know to get the most out of your settlement!
