AUTO ACCIDENTS IN RAINY WEATHER

Automobile Accident Attorney in Stockton Discusses Auto Accidents in Rainy Weather

Weather has a significant impact on a driver’s ability to control their car on the road. People may not realize just how much power rain and wind have when it comes to 2,000 lb hunks of metal, but rainstorms can have serious effects. Strong winds can push cars into another lane if the driver isn’t paying close enough attention. Disruptions to a driver’s vision can result in not seeing other cars or obstacles in the road. Bad weather often results in flooding, causing roads to be dangerous to drive on as well as lane closures and merging. Some individuals do not appreciate the increased danger of driving during rainy weather and will not drive appropriately. These reckless drivers can cause accidents that result in injuries and death to other drivers and passengers. If you have been in an accident resulting in an injury, make sure to contact an automobile accident attorney in Stockton.

Rainy Day Statistics

It may not be surprising to hear that most accidents take place on rainy days or on days when the weather is otherwise atypical. Consulting group Booz Allen Hamilton analyzed ten years of data from the Federal Highway Administration and found that approximately 6,250 fatal traffic collisions and nearly 500,000 bodily injuries occur during bad weather.

SIDESWIPE ACCIDENTS

Auto Accident Attorney in Stockton Explains Sideswipe Accidents

Many people would consider a sideswipe accident to be relatively minor with property damage as the greatest concern. However, sideswiping can actually be very serious and is often just the first incident in a more severe collision. Most sideswiping incidents occur when two cars are driving side-by-side and a driver becomes distracted, drifting into the lane of the other driver. At this point, there is the possibility for escalation. If either driver reacts to this contact by overcorrecting, they may veer into yet another car, an inanimate object, or may flip their car if the overcorrection is severe enough. If you or someone you know has been involved in a sideswipe accident, call an auto accident attorney in Stockton to see if you’re eligible for compensation.

Nearly a quarter of a million (250,000) sideswipe incidents occur per year, resulting in approximately 27,000 injuries and more than 2,500 fatalities, according to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. (more…)
