Winter Related Accidents in San Diego
One of the most common causes of car accidents is inclement weather conditions; this mainly affects Southern California more adversely due to the rarity of rain and harsh winds. Southern California cities such as San Diego, like most of California, usually sees only sun day in and day out; however, the inclement weather appears occasionally and primarily exclusively during winter. During Southern California winters residents can expect heavy rainfall and powerful winds; unfortunately, due to rarity of these weather conditions, California drivers simply aren’t accustomed to driving in frozen weather and a result, traffic accidents statistics begin to climb drastically due to severe weather occurrence. Accidents caused by weather are handled just like any other accident, and having a professional personal injury attorney on your side is critical if you plan on receiving compensation.
One of components of inclement weather is harsh winds; the Pacific Coast wind force is fiercer than any other region in the nation. Accidents caused by incelement weather conditions typically involve fierce winds and often result in serious injury or wrongful death. Obviously when wind conditions are the primary cause for the accident, the fault may not necessarily be on the driver, but the claims for wind-related accident injuries are just as valid but often the expertise of an experienced personal injury laywer is required if you want the best chance of receiving compensation.
Another component of inclement weather is heavy rainfall; winter months are usually when southern California residents receive rain, and when they do it’s almost always a downpour. California has struggled with drought for many years, and now that rainfall is becoming more common and in more abundance amounts, the state is experiencing mudslides throughout elevated regions. When mudslides occur, highways and country roads may be blocked by falling land and rock in certain areas along the roadway, and when accidents occur before highway employees provide warnings, accidents begin to occur.
