Rainy, icy or snowy conditions make it much more dangerous to drive. There have been a few chain reaction collisions in California due in part to snow, ice, and windy conditions. But inclement weather can’t be an excuse for drivers who do not drive responsibly; collisions result when people do not adapt to road and weather conditions.
In the state of California, winter driving can be a challenge since roads do not see a lot of rainfall throughout the year and oil build-up can sometimes be thick and very slick.
If you find yourself involved in an accident with another driver who has not adjusted properly to road and weather conditions, consult with an auto accident lawyer quickly. The insurance company of the driver at fault may contact you promptly after the accident in an attempt to blame the accident on bad weather or poor road conditions. The wisest thing is to not comment until you’ve had a chance to talk about the accident with an attorney.
The goal of any insurance provider is to make the smallest possible payment on a claim that is filed. However, an attorney has a different goal – making sure that your interests and rights are protected and that you are properly compensated. If you have questions regarding an auto accident injury, please contact my office for a free consultation. We work on a contingency fee basis – which means you will not pay a fee unless we recover compensation for your pain and suffering.
