Waukesha Water Pooling Attorneys

There is no question that rainy and wet conditions make the roadway more dangerous than it would be under optimal conditions. Unfortunately, the negligence of the municipal authorities who are entrusted with the responsibility to properly maintain the roadway can further threaten the welfare of motorists. In particularly, the failure to eliminate indentations that collect water into deep pools on the road surface presents a grave concern. Drivers who encounter pools of water may lose control of their vehicles, resulting severe crashes that may produce significant injuries.

If you or a loved one has been harmed because a roadway maintenance agency failed to repair a road prone to water pooling, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact a Waukesha water pooling attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to learn more about your legal options in this situation.

Dangers Associated with Water Pooling

The tires are the only points of contact between a vehicle and the roadway and when water gathers under a tire, an automobile no longer grips the roadway as is necessary for safe driving. This may lead to spinning, fishtailing, or even rollover accidents. The following are some of the dangers associated with water pooling in the road surface:

  •             Inability to brake
  •             Engine failure due to a sudden influx of water
  •             Collisions with oncoming traffic if a vehicle spins uncontrollably
  •             Collisions due to a driver’s attempts to regain control of a vehicle

There can be no tolerance for accidents that could have been prevented if a municipal authority had properly completed its duties.
