If you were involved in a car crash of any kind, be sure to download your free copy of our resource guide Don’t Wreck Your Injury Claim for helpful advice and information. You can find tips for driving in the rain in our article "Avoid Rain Related Injury Accidents: Tips For Bad Weather Driving."
Car accidents are common on the days when rain and snow and other inclement weather conditions make the roads more treacherous than normal.
If you are involved in a car accident, you may not be able to sue the weatherman or Mother Nature, but the fact is most car crashes on wet roads are caused by another party.
Were you hit by another driver? Despite the weather, the actions of another driver may not have been appropriate for the driving conditions that day. Was the other driver going too fast? Did the other driver have the proper equipment in working order, namely headlights and windshield wipers?
If your accident was caused by faulty equipment on your own vehicle, the car maker or parts manufacturer may bear part or all of the blame. These questions can easily become complicated and are best answered by an experienced Kansas City car crash attorney.
