The Danger of Hydroplaning

Almost all veteran drivers know that wet weather brings its own frightening set of dangers and risks for those navigating the roads. While many modern roads are developed in a way to prevent the accumulation of standing water on the road, there is still an always-present threat of hydroplaning.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a car accident as the result of another driver navigating recklessly in wet conditions, you have a right to seek compensation for the damage done. Contact the Appleton car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874 to learn more about your legal options from a compassionate lawyer.

Hydroplaning Safety Hazards

Hydroplaning occurs when a layer of water develops between the tires of your vehicle and the road. This results in a loss of traction and potentially a loss of vehicular control. Too often, reckless drivers do not operate with caution when navigating wet, potentially dangerous roads. Such drivers may:

  • Attempt to drive at high speeds on the watery road
  • Lose control of their vehicles due to inability to drive due to hydroplaning
  • Overcompensate for their sudden loss of control while hydroplaning
  • Fail to keep a safe distance from other drivers while navigating in wet conditions

Any of these actions can lead to very serious auto accidents.
