Slick Roads, Fallen Leaves and Traffic Crashes

On the roadway, numerous hazards may be present, especially during certain times of the year. For example, many parts of the country see poorer weather conditions in the fall and winter, which can increase the likelihood of a crash in many ways. In the fall, roads may become very slick due to heavy or persistent rainfall. Moreover, leaves may fall from the trees, and when these leaves become wet they can also increase the chances of a traffic crash, especially for motorcyclists. It is vital to pay attention to any weather-related road hazards when you are driving.

Unfortunately, some people find themselves in a crash after losing control of their vehicle or because another driver lost control of his or her vehicle. This can happen anywhere on the road, but it may be especially problematic around a sharp turn or in an area where many leaves tend to accumulate on the roadway. Moreover, roads may even become icy in certain parts of the country in the near future, and this is particularly dangerous.

Even if you pay attention to these risks while driving, other people may be less vigilant. For example, a reckless driver may exceed the speed limit and lose control of their car, slamming into you. Or, someone who lacks experience driving in certain road conditions may not be familiar with handling their vehicle properly and they could cause an accident that leaves you with serious problems. If you are struggling to recover from a crash that happened because another driver was careless, you may need to file suit.
