We are sorry to hear about your injuries. You ask an important question, because the answer could impact your recovery.
Sometimes we hear truckers (and other drivers) claim that they couldn’t avoid hydroplaning because of the weather conditions and thus, they try to blame the resulting accident on the rain.
Do Not Be Fooled by Their Argument!
It may not be true. Truckers and other drivers may be able to avoid hydroplaning truck accidents by reducing their speed. Additionally, if conditions are really so bad that hydroplaning cannot be avoided then truckers and other drivers have a responsibility to get off the road.
Thus, if you have been injured by a hydroplaning truck on Overland Parkway then a trucker’s negligence may have caused your injuries. It is important to know what to do to protect your possible recovery.
