Proving Negligence in a Weather-Related Car Accident

In bad weather, the chances of a car accident increase significantly. Inclement weather such as fog, rain, sleet, snow, and ice can reduce visibility, traction, speed control, and brake performance. For this reason, drivers must adjust their speed and take extra care when traveling in  bad weather conditions. Drivers who fail to do so not only put their own lives at risk, but they also endanger everyone else around them.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, weather causes more than 1.3 million crashes in the U.S. each year. These crashes result in more than 6,000 deaths and 480,000 injuries annually. Pennsylvania is among the states most at risk for icy road deaths.

Although bad weather makes for dangerous  driving conditions, the at-fault driver may still be held responsible. Their insurance company may try to deny liability, claiming that the weather conditions caused the crash. However, the defendant may have failed to take necessary safety precautions, such as lowering speed, using headlights, or completely clearing snow/ice from their vehicle before driving. A car accident lawyer at Munley Law will help determine whether driver negligence played a part in your crash.
