California is expected to have a very volatile weather season and a new study found that by the end of the century, the climate change in California will oscillate more frequently between floods and extreme draught. This could mean significant problems for people across the board both living in and driving around California.
Historic amounts of snow and rain fell in California throughout 2016 and 2017 and then that season of floods was followed by one of the driest and hottest summers on record. Many areas of Southern California were plagued by fire storms. The wild weather in California makes it all the more important for someone behind the wheel to be knowledgeable about how to manipulate their car in dangerous weather conditions.
People who do not adapt their driving abilities behind the wheel when extreme weather arrives, may lose control of their car, hydroplane or seriously injure or kill others. Many of these devastating situations can be prevented by someone being knowledgeable or trying to stay off the roads, if at all possible. If you have already been hurt in a serious accident that you believe to have been caused by someone who failed to adapt their driving behavior to that of a plan focused on safety, you may eligible to illustrate that other person’s negligence and pursue a personal injury claim.
