Vehicle Safety Tips
In winter, keep an ice scraper with a brush in your glove box in case it snows or sleets. Also check that you have wiper fluid/de-icer in your car. Ensure that your windshield washer works. You may need it in snow and sleet. Remember that bridges and overpasses can freeze before the roads do.
After an accident, injured people need to obtain appropriate medical care; they also need their legal rights protected. Contact the personal injury attorney’s at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. today, we can help.
