Erie Car Accident Lawyer: Caution! Fall Means More Deer on the Road

October 23, 2010, ERIE, PA -- On Thursday, Scott Bonnell had 14 cars in his car repair body shops. All of them damaged by collisions with deer. Yep, it's fall and deer are out on the roads.

The beginning of the fall mating season and the beginning of hunting season coincide to drive deer from the woods and out on the roadways. So, be careful. There may be nothing you can do to avoid a collision with a deer, particularly if it jumps out in front of you as they sometimes do, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be prepared. Often, the worst harm comes not from hitting a deer but from swerving recklessly to avoid a deer. Drivers who swerve into oncoming traffic or off the road and into a tree can cause far more harm to themselves and others than would have resulted from striking the deer.

So, preparedness means being aware of the danger and prepared to handle it in a calm, safe manner.
