Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and accidents can occur without warning. Stepping on an icy curb or a snow-covered sidewalk puts you at risk for potentially devastating personal injuries.
When there are more vehicles on the road, there are more opportunities for accidents to happen. Other factors increase the likelihood of collisions as well, such as longer nighttime hours and adverse weather conditions. But traffic congestion is one factor that significantly increases a motorist's risk of being involved in a collision, especially when that traffic involves large trucks. Furthermore, you are more likely to be involved in a truck accident during the holiday season than during other times of the year due to the increased demand for consumer goods. Truck drivers are often exhausted from long days and weeks on the road, contributing to the increased rate of collisions at this time of year.
