When you think of dangers on the road, you probably picture congested city streets and rush hour traffic. However, rural auto accidents are more likely to be fatal than city crashes. High speeds, alcohol, reduced access to medical care, and other factors lead to the alarming number of rural fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a rural accident, the attorneys of Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma can help you obtain financial compensation. This money can help with property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and many other expenses following an accident.
