Driving Dangers in Adverse Weather
The east coast is known for its adverse weather conditions, such as excessive rain, sleet, snow, ice, and wind. However, not every driver acknowledges the dangers posed by these conditions on the road. Unfortunately, reckless drivers all over Massachusetts put other innocent drivers at risk of being involved in a car accident because they drive unsafely in adverse weather conditions. The personal injury attorneys of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, recognize this behavior and proactively help reckless driving victims pursue legal options for justice and compensation.
Why Adverse Conditions are More Dangerous
Even on a normal day, a reckless driver is dangerous. However, on days when the weather is bad, such a driver becomes even more of a threat. This is because adverse weather can:
- Impede one’s ability to slow or stop
- Impede one’s vision
- Cause sliding or hydroplaning
- Affect the responsiveness of one’s vehicle
All of these effects of adverse weather make the chances of an accident go up; these chances are further exacerbated when drivers exhibit reckless behavior in poor weather. Fortunately, if you are injured or unduly affected by a reckless driver in adverse conditions, a Massachusetts personal injury attorney can help you pursue financial compensation to recover any damages.
