Severe Weather Conditions
Motor vehicle accidents are an unfortunate and unavoidable reality of automotive travel. To reduce the likelihood of causing a collision, motorists must ensure that they are operating their vehicles in accordance with safety laws. More pressing, in some cases, is the need to adapt one’s driving to severe weather conditions. It is generally advisable to stay off the road when possible under such conditions, but this may not be an option.
If you have been the victim of an accident that was caused by another motorist’s failure to adjust to the presence of severe weather conditions, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate.

Examples of Severe Conditions
There a number of potentially dangerous roadway conditions that have nothing to do with the weather, and these should also be considered on a case by case basis. However, the following severe conditions are apt to be encountered with greater regularity:
- Icy Roads – can compromise a vehicle’s traction and therefore a driver’s control
- Snow Storm – can obscure visibility, interfere with traction, and make it difficult to discern the boundaries of a lane or road
- Thunderstorm – can obscure visibility and create slick roadways, also possibly creating road obstructions such as fallen trees or other debris
- Severe Fog – can limit visibility and reduce the effectiveness of lights
All of these conditions require that motorists exercise good judgment and safe driving practices in order to avoid car accidents.
If you have been injured in a car accident because of another driver’s failure to drive safely during severe weather conditions, it may be in your best interest to consider legal action.
