Walnut Creek Weather-Related Accident Lawyers
Representing Clients Injured Due to Accidents Caused by Severe Weather Conditions
The Bay Area's location near the sea creates some unusual and potentially dangerous driving conditions each month of the year. The weather changes quickly and catches even the most experienced Bay Area drivers off guard. Drivers and passengers of all kinds of vehicles are at risk for being involved in weather-related accidents. As with any other type of vehicle accident, drivers and passengers can suffer serious and even fatal injuries in weather-related accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed in a weather-related auto accident, the attorneys at Walnut Creek personal injury law firm Balamuth Law, may be able to help you and your family.
Northern California's famously foggy weather and slick roads create challenging driving conditions throughout the area, and drivers know very well that it is their responsibility to slow down and operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner. Sadly, some drivers fail to adjust their driving habits accordingly and operate their vehicles in a negligent manner, putting other drivers and their passengers at unnecessary risk. Examples of incidents where drivers are negligent and fail to observe safety protocols in bad weather include:
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Failing to employ hazard lights, flares, and other methods to alert other drivers
- Not providing enough distance between vehicles in heavy traffic
- Not observing posted speed limits in work zones
- Failure to obey a traffic signal
- And many other types of negligent behavior
Weather-related accidents claimed the lives of 57 people and resulted in 951 injuries in California two years ago. While the state of California and public safety officials have made great strides in reducing the number of people injured and killed in weather-related accidents, there is only so much they can do. It is incumbent upon drivers to operate their vehicles safely at all times and in all weather conditions.
