Driving in inclement weather is known to be dangerous, but many people fail to consider the danger that remains after the rain has stopped. Weather can cause damage to roads, and if local municipalities have not taken care to maintain roadways, there may be pools of water gathered on the road surface. Water pooling causes many car accidents every year, and many of these accidents could be prevented if those responsible for maintaining roadways did not neglect their duty.
If you or someone you know was injured due to a roadway defect such as water pooling, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other damages.

Dangers of Water Pooling
Water pooling might not seem to be very dangerous at first thought. The reality, however, is that it has the potential to create serious dangers for motorists. The loss of control over one’s vehicle that results from a tire’s contact with gathered water can lead to the following hazards:
- Vehicle rollover
- Collision with oncoming traffic
- Collision with fixed objects on or near the roadway
- Exiting the roadway
All of these situations could cause serious car accidents, resulting in injuries or even death in the worst cases. You should not have to deal with the consequences of municipal error without recourse.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a collision caused by water pooling, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact the experienced Kenosha road defects attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today to learn more about your legal rights and options.
