NEW JERSEY CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS: ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY SNOW-COVERED VEHICLES

Snow removal after a winter storm can be tedious; however, it is important to remember to clean all the snow off of your car before heading out on the road. Snow on the hood, trunk or roof of a vehicle can fly off while you are driving and cause significant damage and serious injury to other drivers. Moreover, New Jersey state law requires that vehicles on the road are free from snow and ice that could create problems for other drivers.

Violators of this law face fines up to $75 if no damaged is caused by the snow on a vehicle, and up to $1000 per incident if snow flies off a vehicle and causes a car accident, damage or injuries.

The same law also applies to tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks. If snow is not thoroughly removed from the top of a big rig, it could violate height restrictions and collide with power lines or bridges.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a car accident because another driver failed to remove snow from his or her vehicle, call Eichen Cruthlow Zaslow & McElroy at 1-800-398-7018 or contact us online. Our team of experienced New Jersey car accident lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation for your injuries.
