Every motorist is expected to demonstrate a certain degree of driving competence and knowledge prior to obtaining a driver’s license. But there are many subsequent highway situations in which this early-acquired skill and awareness will not suffice to prevent calamitous motor vehicle accidents. As on spends more time driving, he or she is bound eventually to encounter adverse weather conditions that can interfere with one’s ability to control a car or truck. If a driver is prepared to adapt to these environmental concerns then safe driving is possible. But if instead they choose to drive in a manner that is not in accordance with the safest practices then they may cause collisions that result in the serious injury of other motorists who were driving properly.

The consequences of a car accident can be quite severe and may leave a crash victim in need of extensive medical care, unable to work, and otherwise afflicted. Typically, these parties have relied upon the benefits available through the filing of an insurance claim to meet their needs. As healthcare costs continue to rise and policy benefit limits do not keep pace, however, it is often the case that insurance alone will not resolve the complications. Depending upon the circumstances, it may be appropriate to consider filing a civil lawsuit.

Bad Weather Danger

There are adverse weather events that may be so severe as to completely eliminate a driver’s ability and responsibility to control a vehicle. But it is much more frequently the case that caution and modification of regular driving behaviors restores that control. When drivers ignore the following conditions, they may be liable for the consequences of resulting accidents:

  • Fog
  • Sandstorms/dust storms
  • Rain (whether light or heavy)
  • Snowy or icy conditions
  • Powerful winds
