Poor Weather Conditions Can Cause Accidents in Several Ways
According to The Weather Channel, weather-related accidents cause many more fatalities each year than the weather systems themselves. In Gulfport, weather and road conditions may deteriorate quickly. Related causes of accidents may include standing water, heavy rain, hail, or the occasional snow or ice. Wet roads are often slick roads, and hydroplaning can happen quickly. Drivers need to make adjustments to how they behave behind the wheel as weather and road conditions change.
Under the Mississippi Civil Code, drivers who fail to adjust to wet or slick roads or standing water may be legally responsible for the accidents they cause. You may be able to pursue a payout for your injuries and property damages if you suffered injuries because of one of these drivers.

Our Team Knows How to Build a Case Based on Failure to Heed Changing Conditions
If we believe you have a case against the at-fault driver who caused your Harrison County traffic accident, a Gulfport failure to heed changing weather or road condition lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm can work on your case today. We understand that, in some cases, a driver can cause an injury accident by failing to pay attention to the changing conditions around them. This inattention could cause them to be unable to stop in time, lose control of their vehicle and cross the centerline, or cause other dangerous situations.
To hold a driver liable for a traffic accident, we must have evidence to support:
- The driver had a responsibility to follow a certain traffic rule
- The driver failed to do so, either carelessly or because of their deliberate actions
- The driver’s failure caused a collision
- You suffered financial damages and injuries in the accident
We will identify and gather evidence, possibly including statements or testimony from experts in accident reconstruction, your injuries, and more. We will build a case for court, even though going to trial is not always necessary to recover a just payout.
