Do Minor Accidents Warrant a Call to a Calgary Personal Injury Lawyer?

Contrary to what many Calgarians might think, the most dangerous time to drive on Calgary's roads and highways isn't winter. According to statistics from 2014, more traffic accidents in Alberta actually take place in October—the same month we typically get our first heavy snowfalls—than any other month. Even though there's more snow and more hazardous road conditions in the true winter season, there are also fewer drivers on Calgary's roads, and the weather and road conditions mean drivers use more caution and travel at slower speeds.
