Avoid rain related injury accidents

Tragic auto accidents like this might not be able to be avoided but the likelihood can be limited by simply keeping up maintenance on your vehicle.  This includes making sure windshield wipers work properly and the tires are properly inflated.  Tires can blow if they are over or under inflated.  Check your vehicle maintenance guide so that you know the proper inflation.

The Kansas accident and personal injury attorneys of the Roswold Law Group would like to express our deepest sympathies for the families of Ms. Reyes and Mr. Lopez in the aftermath of this tragic accident and wish a speedy recovery for the children in this case.
