Being prepared for winter is a must-do in New Hampshire; the snow and ice can hit suddenly, and cold, frigid temperatures make it hard to get around without planning. Since there are additional hazards in winter, it's wise to take some time to prepare. For example, before you even leave your home, you should look up the weather conditions for the day. Knowing that a snow storm is rolling in can help you arrange your travels when you're least likely to get caught in it.

Overturned vehicle causes crash in Epping

Truck accidents can happen suddenly, especially if they roll. Sometimes heavy winds or taking a turn too quickly can result in a heavy vehicle rolling because of its size and shape. When a large vehicle overturns, it can be devastating to others around it. Passenger vehicles may not be able to handle the weight of the hit, crushing the tops of the vehicles or injuring people inside. Others following close behind may not be able to have enough time to get out of the way, colliding with the vehicle that overturned. If this happens to you, seeking compensation for your injuries and medical care can help you stay afloat while you focus on your own recovery.
