Bad driving conditions can certainly affect your claim. Certainly, living in Western New York we have all experienced bad driving conditions. The question is, when we have inclement conditions, how does that bear on the liability of a person who is involved in an accident? The responsibility of every driver is to operate their vehicle in a manner which is consistent with the reasonable person under the circumstances.
That means that in the event that there is inclement weather, or there’s slippery conditions, that the person’s responsibility is to act with more caution. In other words, if there is a speed limit of 55 and there’s inclement conditions, traveling 55 might not be reasonable. Those conditions coupled with the actions of the individual who’s involved in the accident will bear on the liability.
