Legal Consequences of Winter Motorcycle Accidents

Some people are under the assumption that once December rears its head, motorcyclists turn in for the season. However, this is not always the case. Some motorcyclists brave the cold temperatures and weather conditions to get from place to place.

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident this winter, proving negligence is key for securing compensation. Certain actions may be considered negligent, including:

  • Driving fast when snowy or icy road conditions are present
  • Following another vehicle too closely when the road has ice or black ice
  • Neglecting to perform  proper winter maintenance on a vehicle
  • Driving without lights in dark or foggy conditions
