Does Weather Change Who's Liable For A Car Accident?
Auto accidents go up when the weather outside is frightful. Does that mean that changing road conditions and dangerous weather are to blame for accidents that happen during bad weather? Not exactly. All Drivers Are Responsible for Their Cars A basic rule of auto accident law is that all drivers are responsible for their own cars. If you slam on your brakes and nothing happens because they've failed, you still have to compensate the other driver if your brake failure causes you to rear-end them.
