Hydroplaning Car Accident Lawyer
Hydroplaning occurs due to the build-up of water on the front of a vehicle's tires. When a driver accelerates over 35 miles per hour, hydroplaning causes the tires to move faster due to the lack of traction with the ground. The result of a hydroplane is the driver’s inability to control vehicle functions like accelerating, steering, and braking functions. Hydroplaning vehicle accidents car be serious due to the lack of evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision. The vehicle may move at faster speeds or drift out of the lane while it is in the midst of hydroplaning.
