Car accidents in rainy weather common in California

Many Californians have trouble driving in rainy weather. In fact, rainy weather appears to cause more car accidents in the morning, afternoon and evening than dry weather does. Often, panic ensues when the weather turns from mild and sunny to rainy.

Still, researchers say that this problem is not unique to the Golden State. Instead, it is a national issue, with around a quarter of weather-related car crashes across the country occurring in adverse weather conditions. Experts said that 75 percent of these crashes took place when the road was wet, and 47 percent took place when it was raining.

Officials said that the best way to avoid crashes during rainy weather is to slow down, as this enables drivers to react to unexpected events more rapidly. Of course, it will not prevent skidding or hydroplaning on a wet road. It can also be helpful for drivers to turn on their lights to boost their visibility. Using windshield wipers is another important move when driving in rain, as it can also increase visibility.

Unfortunately, sometimes fellow motorists on the road in California act negligently during rainy weather by driving too quickly for the weather conditions. If they end up causing accidents in which other individuals are injured, the victims have the right to file personal injury claims against the reportedly at-fault parties, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. If the victims are successful in their claims, they may receive monetary damages that might help them to cover their medical costs and other losses tied to these types of car accidents.
