What If Hazardous Road Conditions Led To Your Accident?

What If Hazardous Road Conditions Led To Your Accident? Being involved in an accident of any kind can lead to serious upheaval in your life. And finding the footing you need to move on isn't' always easy - especially when you're struggling to recover financially. Filing a personal injury claim against those who are responsible for your accident is one of the best ways to go about getting your life back on track and overcoming the financial challenges that can often plague those who are hurt in accidents.

But what if your accident was caused by hazardous road conditions - at least to some degree? Florida roads can face a wide range of issues including wet roads, heavy rain, high winds, and more. All of those hazardous conditions can trigger an accident. And when that occurs, it's important to understand that even though the weather or road conditions may have played a role, you may still have the ability to seek compensation.

Here are some of the ways that you could still be able to seek restitution in a personal injury lawsuit even if your accident was caused by bad weather or road conditions.

Other Drivers - The most obvious way that you could still seek compensation is simple - if another driver drove in a way that was unsafe for the weather conditions, you could file a compensation claim against them or their insurance company. This isn't always easy to prove, and you'll have to be able to show that they were driving in a manner unsuitable for the road and weather. But with a good personal injury lawyer on your side, you could do just that and prove that you deserve compensation.

Road Design - Sometimes, roads are simply designed unsafely. From poor grading and drainage to sharp curves and a lack of any warning signs, certain conditions could directly impact your safety while driving. And if this is the case, you could seek compensation for your injuries and get restitution. In these situations, you'll be seeking compensation against engineers that designed the roads or towns and county governments that fail to provide proper warning. As such, you'll need a skilled auto accident lawyer on your side to stand up to the other side and get the restitution you're owed.

• Automakers - There is also a chance that a part of your vehicle that is supposed to keep you safe fails to do so during poor weather conditions. For example, wipers that stop working or tires that should shed water properly but don't could be responsible for your injuries to some degree. In these situations, you may be able to file a claim against the automaker or the maker of the vehicle part that led to the injuries.

• Truck Companies - If your accident involved a commercial truck, there's also a chance that you could get restitution from the trucking company. This is especially true If the driver was acting in a way that can be shown to be reckless, negligent, or even against the guidelines set forth by the government, you could seek compensation from the trucking company.

All in all, you have several different options that can help you get restitution for your injuries. You'll need to consult with an auto accident lawyer in order to determine what options you have, who you can seek financial compensation from, and what your rights are.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
