It is no secret that even the slightest bit of rainfall in California can cause a panic. When those rain clouds loom overhead, even the most competent drivers are suddenly nervous and unpredictable on the road. From slick roads to impaired visibility, it is no wonder that automobile accidents increase in harsh weather. If you have experienced difficulty on the road, check out these tips on safe driving. 

Driving in unusually rainy weather is always risky, and is especially dangerous after a long dry season. All the usual freeways are backed up, drivers are constantly changing speed, and the number of accidents on the road soars. Even so, it is important to remember that accidents can also be caused by other external factors.

Contrary to what you might think, a significant number of accidents on rainy days are the result of negligence on the road. If you have experienced any injuries from a car accident in the rain, it might be time to do some research.

Believe it or not, poor road conditions might be the cause of rainy day accidents, rather than simply the competency of the driver. Common causes of accidents include neglected road treatment, traffic light malfunctions or speed limit control. By thoroughly investigating an accident, the city or state might end up being responsible for your accident, and could possibly compensate you accordingly. It may be worth spending a little time and energy examining your situation, before paying any sort of accident fee.

Even in California, the rainy season certainly keeps attorneys busy.  Be sure to turn on your headlights, slow down, and pay attention to your surroundings.
