Who is responsible for a car accident when the road conditions are icy?

 

In South Dakota, every driver is charged with acting with due care depending on the conditions of the roadway. So if a driver loses control of his vehicle and causes a collision with your vehicle, such as a rear-end accident, the fact that the roads were icy and covered with snow is not a defense — he may still be responsible for the damage to your vehicle and your injuries.
