Causes of Hydroplaning
After it has rained, roads tend to be slick. This presents a danger within itself, as slick roads may make your vehicle more difficult to control. Combined with other factors specific to your automobile, you may be at a great risk of hydroplaning when driving over wet roads. Hydroplaning may lead to serious injuries if you lose control of your vehicle.
If you or someone you love has been injured because your vehicle hydroplaned, someone may be at fault. Contact the Milwaukee personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn more.
When you drive in rainy or wet conditions, you should always drive with caution. This may involve driving slowly, avoiding puddles and standing water, or taking an entirely different route to get where you are going.
Unfortunately, some automobiles and road conditions lend themselves to danger. Some potential hazards that may cause you to hydroplane are:
- Poor road conditions
- Bad or faulty tires
- Standing water
While you may be able to avoid some of these hazards, some may be unavoidable, especially defective tires. Should you suffer an injury because of defective tires or a poorly maintained road, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.
Hydroplaning may lead to serious injury. However, it can be preventable with better tires or better kept roads. If your vehicle hydroplaned, causing you to lose control and get injured, contact the Milwaukee personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to find out how we can help you.
