Reckless Driving in Adverse Conditions
Adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain, snow, sleet, ice, wind, etc., can make driving extremely dangerous. However, the dangers associated with these conditions are only exacerbated when drivers do not respect the need for more cautious driving. Sadly, many innocent Tennessee drivers are hurt in accidents every year because other drivers fail to respect adverse weather conditions and drive recklessly. The personal injury attorneys of Pohl & Berk, LLP, advocate for victims of reckless drivers, and may be able to get them financial compensation for injuries or costs sustained in an accident.
Ways Adverse Weather Makes Driving More Dangerous
Adverse weather combined with reckless driving, can make driving especially dangerous because such weather can:
- Worsen one’s visibility
- Cause sliding / hydroplaning
- Make drivers erratic
- Impeded one’s ability to stop suddenly
These effects of adverse conditions can significantly increase the chances of a car accident when they are combined with a reckless driver. Fortunately, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help Tennessee reckless driving victims fight for compensation that may be their due after an accident.
