Why Warmer Weather Can Mean an Increase in Automobile Accidents

With the summer months just around the corner, more and more people will start to go outside—something that often makes driving more hazardous. In fact, believe it or not, the warmer weather often increases the chances that a person could get into a motor vehicle accident.

Why They Happen

First and foremost, warmer weather brings out a lot more bicyclists and pedestrians. Children, families, and pets will also go out to play. A lot of people will be traveling/going on vacation throughout the summer, thus bringing them to places they aren’t used to. Furthermore, more construction sites will be up and running on many local roads and major highways.

Unfortunately, these things can be distracting to drivers. Pedestrians may accidentally go into the street at the wrong time, resulting in not just a distraction but an unavoidable accident for the driver. More construction zones can cause changes in speed, lane changes, and thus increased danger for both road crews and drivers if they drive too close to shoulders, or crews stand too close to traffic. Whichever of these unfortunate circumstances you find yourself in—and whether you are the driver, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian—Fellerman & Ciarimboli is here to protect your rights.

Keep in mind; transportation accidents are not limited to automobiles. With the nicer weather, you’ll also see more people riding motorcycles and many other types of vehicles. We even help with accidents that involve following:

  • Buses

  • Aircrafts
