The Dangers of Driving in Fog
With high humidity, more water droplets have the ability to hang around in the air. Thick fog can develop and mask many things around you. When you are driving, reduced visibility is incredibly dangerous. Not being able to see obstacles, curves in the road, or other cars around you makes it very challenging to navigate the roads safely. Foggy areas also make it next to impossible to see road signs, bicyclists, or other pedestrians.
If you are able to avoid driving in high fog areas, this is best recommended. However, it is not always feasible to pick and choose what weather conditions in which you are going to travel. In some cases, you can be on the road when a hazardous weather system appears unexpectedly.
Should a crash happen and you or another passenger in your car be injured, you may be able to secure compensation for the harm you suffered. Bob Germany is a Jackson personal injury attorney with over four decades of experience assisting victims with injury claims to get the compensation they need and deserve. Your claim for financial compensation can include damages such as medical expenses, property damages, missed wages, pain and suffering, and more.
It only takes one misstep while driving for a massive crash to happen, and with reduced ability to see clearly as is the case in foggy areas, a fender bender can easily turn into a multi-car pileup. In fog, drivers may not necessarily see obstacles on the road until it's too late giving them no time to stop or make quick adjustments.
