Weather and Road Conditions


When the weather conditions are extreme, any vehicle driver is expected to operate the vehicle in a safe manner, including traveling at a safe speed. Icy or snowy roads must be traveled far more slowly. Some drivers continue to speed, even when it is exceptionally dangerous to do so, often leading to multi car accidents with many injuries or fatalities. A driver who endangered others through unsafe driving behavior may be held liable for the injuries he or she caused.

Road Hazards

Road Hazards

Other factors may come into play that make driving conditions far more hazardous, particular issues such as roads that are improperly graded, maintained or signed. Various state, county, and municipal agencies have a duty to maintain our roads and highways. When they fall short on their duty and motorists are hurt, a legal action may arise.

If you believe faulty road conditions contributed to your accident, a lawyer at Gruber Law Offices can explore your case and advise you of your legal options. If we determine that you have a case, we can ensure the correct party is held liable for the injury or fatal accident.

A road is maintained by various agencies which could be at the state, county or municipal level. Any case involving a governmental agency has different time limits for filing a claim. Working within this time frame is crucial. If the case is not filed in time, your case may be lost forever.

Weather Condition Accidents

The facts surrounding an accident that resulted from weather conditions must be analyzed by a legal professional familiar with claims for this type of case. Vehicle drivers may have exceeded safe speed limits for the weather conditions present. Those drivers can be behind the wheel of a car, truck, or commercial tractor-trailer.
