Vehicle Safety Tips:
Expect more animals. Fall and decreased daylight hours bring more activity in areas where wildlife is common. The decreased daylight reduces visibility. Slow down so you can stop safely if animals are on or near the roadway. Be sure your headlights, both high beam and low beam, are in working order and the lenses are clean.
If you have been injured in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence, call a personal injury attorney right away. It is crucial that you contact a car accident attorney immediately so that the proper steps can be taken to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your damages. Call the personal injury attorneys at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. to see how we can help you.
