Helping You Weather The Storm
Brampton personal injury lawyers Singh Barristers know from experience that Canadian winters increase chances of accidents. Whether you’re a motor-vehicle driver, passenger, pedestrian, bicyclist or motorcyclist, inhospitable weather conditions can create driving hazards.
Does Weather Affect Driving Conditions?
Though accidents are caused by someone’s fault or negligence, one of the contributing factors is the weather.
The March 15, 2017 accident in Hamilton which caused the death of a 67 year old man has been attributed to bad weather conditions prevailing at the time.
Poor weather causes:
- visibility problems due to fog, snow, rain
- reduced traction on the road
- reduced control over vehicle
- increased risks in speeding
- slippery road surfaces when ice begins to melt
- reduced control while turning
There may be several factors, besides the weather that contribute to accidents. Speeding, drunk/impaired driving, distractions etc are some of the other causes.
If you or a dear one has been injured in an accident caused by another person’s fault or negligence, contact the nearest personal injury lawyer in Brampton. You may be entitled to compensation.
How We Can Help
Bad weather is certainly a contributory factor, but essentially, accidents are caused by negligence or failure to adjust driving behavior to the weather conditions, thereby violating safety norms.
If the at-fault party was speeding or driving recklessly in poor weather conditions, it’s important to get evidence of this.
Our experienced Brampton car accident lawyer can work with a multi-disciplinary team to put together robust evidence to back your claim.
Our 24 hour injury lawyers can access police and traffic records, medical and hospital reports, hire automobile and collision experts, contact witnesses if any, access CCTV footage, documentary or photographic evidence, if available.
We can also conduct independent investigations to assess the condition of the at-fault party’s vehicle, his/her familiarity with the roads, driving experience and style, etc to further back your claim.
