Worcester Snowplow Accident Lawyers
Winter is a fact of life, and when the snow falls, it has to be cleared from our roadways. Who is responsible for snow removal is often a matter of which governmental jurisdiction a road falls under, or whether that road is on private property.
As a result, it isn’t always obvious who is responsible for accidents that involve snowplows. Plows used on a certain stretch of road could have any of a variety of owners and could be driven by operators who are on contract.
What is obvious is that a snowplow is a massive vehicle that can cause serious injuries to people who are in its path, whether the victim is in a vehicle or on foot. Snowplows are also the cause of thousands of dollars in property damage each year.

Snowplow negligence can manifest in various ways. An operator may have worked too many hours consecutively, and been too fatigued to drive a plow safely. Or, he or she may have been inattentive to road conditions and not seen a vehicle or person who was reasonably obvious.
He or she may have been drunk or using drugs. Or, the owner of the plow (or the agency responsible for it) may have failed to perform maintenance that rendered the vehicle unsafe or uncontrollable.
