The weather is definitely getting bad around Southern Tennessee. That means that the likelihood of major accidents will also increase. As accident lawyers in Chattanooga, that’s the last thing we want to see because we know how seriously an accident can affect a family. No one can stop the snow from falling, but emergency crews around Knoxville and Chattanooga do have plans in place for this type of weather.
Emergency responders are on stand-by throughout the affected areas. They are there in the event of an auto accident or emergency medical call, and they’re definitely ready for the challenge. Knoxville has certainly been preparing for the coming winter storm and have loaded 15 vehicles with 30 responders. Those vehicles are equipped with four-wheel drive and snow tires and are capable of a quick response in both the city and the country.
Knoxville police also put out warnings for how to deal with accidents. They’ve suggested that those involved only call police if there are injuries or a roadway is blocked. If it’s not that serious, they just want the parties to exchange insurance information. Police will certainly be busy, and as motorists there are things we can do as well. If we can, avoid driving altogether. If you have to drive, drive slowly and cautiously, and we can avoid accidents and avoid injuries.
