Kenosha Shoulder Drop-off Attorneys
Shoulders are designed to provide a bit of extra space for vehicles to pull into while on congested roadways in the event of an emergency or vehicle problem. They also serve as an extra lane for ambulances and police to travel on in case of an emergency. Sometimes, due to bad design or improper maintenance, shoulders are left in an unsafe condition and innocent motorists find themselves in high-risk situations.
If you or someone you love was recently injured in a car accident as a result of an unsafe roadway shoulder, contact the experienced Kenosha shoulder drop-off attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn more about seeking justice as an injury victim.
The Danger of Shoulder Drop-offs
A sudden drop-off onto a lower roadway surface can result in serious injuries and vehicle damage, including:
- Neck and back injuries
- Fractures and lacerations
- Head and brain injuries
- Tire blowouts
- Damage to engine and body of the car
- Collisions with other vehicles or road signs
The municipalities and other agencies responsible for maintaining roadway shoulders should recognize the dangers of shoulder drop-offs and act accordingly. Sadly, they sometimes fail to uphold this critical responsibility.
It is often difficult to take legal action against public officials, but an experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine liability for your injury and present the facts of your case.
