Car Accident Lawyers
Car accidents happen on highways, freeways, and county roads every day, whether it be due to road conditions, traffic, construction, weather conditions, or even debris. In the case above, wet roads caused a pickup truck to hydroplane. Hydroplaning occurs when the combination of a slippery road, speeding, and tire pressure causes a driver to lose control.
Car accidents caused by hydroplaning are the reason many people suffer injuries, even accidents that cause people to be hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the hospital, or killed.
