When roads are poorly constructed or improperly maintained, they can develop road defects such as low spots where water collects on the road surface instead of flowing towards storm drains. This standing water creates a serious hazard for drivers as well as motorcyclists because it can cause motorists to hydroplane and lose control of their vehicles, potentially injuring themselves and others in an otherwise preventable auto accident.
If you have been injured in an accident due to water pooling on a defective road, you may be able to hold the local municipality or road construction company liable for your damages. Our Madison water pooling attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are well aware of the intricacies of cases involving roadway defects and can help you pursue the compensation you may deserve.
