If you're injured in an auto crash that is caused by bad weather, can you still have a case for damages? Let's ask Philadelphia attorney Stewart Eisenberg for this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
Well, bad weather applies to accidents all the time, and the law allows people to recover whether the accident is bad weather, good weather, windy, rainy, snowy, icy. Those are all factors that go into what people were doing on the roadway. Were they being careful? Were they slowing down? Did they have the right tires on? What was the actual effect of the snow? Were there are other accidents before this? All sorts of things can be looked at to determine whether you have a case or not, whether the person that hit you or that was involved in the accident with you was doing the proper things under the circumstances of the particular weather that was going on. Of course, whether that was rain or snow or sleet, and whether the car really operated properly in those in those slippery or wet conditions.
