What Is Hydroplaning?

Hydroplaning refers to a condition when the tires of a car, SUV, truck or any other vehicle, lose contact with the road surface because of the presence of a thin layer of water that may form on a wet road. This wet surface reduces the friction of the tire tread and thereby increases the chances of hydroplaning car accidents.

When the hydroplaning phenomenon occurs, the car driver may lose control of the vehicle if they are not driving cautiously. This puts the driver and the passengers in the car and other drivers on the road at high risk of a personal injury hydroplaning car, SUV and truck accident. If this occurs, the passengers in the car that hydroplaned may have a claim against the driver of that vehicle for negligence. Therefore, you may need a Buffalo, New York personal injury attorney to represent your rights to obtain compensation for the payment of medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Causes Of Hydroplaning Car Accidents In Buffalo, New York

A significant percentage of car accident fatalities in Buffalo, New York occur every year directly because of wet roadways. In a majority of cases, the driver’s negligence is major contributing factor to the crash. A wet road combined with a reckless driver is a hydroplaning car accident waiting to happen.

Car tires are designed with grooves that grip the road’s surface. These grooves also help in dispersing the thin layers of water on the road that come into contact with the tire tread. However, if a car is traveling at a high speed and a driver fails to be cautious, the tire tread may lose contact with the road and cause a hydroplaning car, SUV or truck personal injury accident in Buffalo, New York; Rochester, New York; Niagara Falls, New York or other parts of New York State.

Some of the common causes of hydroplaning car, SUV or truck personal injury accidents include:

  1. Water hazards on the road caused by water pooling and puddles on the road surface;
  2. The driver traveling too fast for the wet road conditions;
  3. The road having poor drainage, leading to water ponding;
  4. Faulty road design and curvature; and
  5. Incorrect air pressure in the car tires.
