The Phoenix weather brings more than dry heat and abundant sunshine. The area’s desert setting makes it a hotspot for swift winds, sometimes reaching 60 miles per hour or more. In fact, the National Weather Service reported Phoenix’s highest recorded gust for 2018 at 71 miles per hour. Drivers who find themselves stuck on the road when wind speeds pick up are at risk of an accident. If you were injured in a car accident caused by high winds, an injury lawyer for accidents caused by high winds in Phoenix, AZ from Zanes Law can help you recover compensation.
We take on the insurance company if they try to deny your high winds car accident claim, and we can also pursue damages from another driver if their negligent actions during a period of high winds contributed to your accident.

The higher the wind speed, the more difficult it is to maintain control of a moving vehicle. Winds have a greater effect on vehicle control the faster the car is traveling. Drivers who find themselves on the interstate moving at 70 miles per hour or faster when a strong wind gust comes may find it impossible to keep their vehicle between the lines, or even on the road.
When you lose control of your vehicle in Phoenix traffic, a collision is almost imminent. Unfortunately, many insurance carriers try to deny claims when high winds contributed to the accident, claiming that winds fall under an “act of God” and thus are not covered by your policy.
Our attorneys take on the insurance companies and make sure they compensate you fairly. Before you agree to talk to them about your accident, speak with an injury lawyer for accidents caused by high winds in Phoenix, AZ from Zanes Law. We have a substantial track record of winning compensation from insurance companies. We can negotiate with them on your behalf while you focus on getting better.
Another common cause of motor vehicle accidents in high winds is that another motorist, often driving too fast or carelessly for the conditions, loses control and strikes your vehicle.
Even if the speed limit is 65, 70, or 75, that does not mean it is safe or legal to drive that fast when the wind speed is at the same level. Under Arizona law, drivers must take road and weather conditions into account and adjust their speed and driving habits accordingly.
If another driver lost control due to high winds and struck you, Zanes Law can gather evidence (photos, videos, eyewitness statements, accident and police reports from the Phoenix Police Department, etc.) and hold them liable for your damages.
