The Dangers of Poor Road Maintenance
Driver safety is one of the most important cornerstones of driver education. We’re taught how to drive responsibly, avoid wrecks, and share the road. However, as much as 20% of accidents are not caused by inattentive drivers but outside factors, such as bad road conditions. Even the most responsible, attentive drivers can be injured or even killed in accidents caused by poorly maintained roads.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in a car accident related to poor road conditions, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Common Road Problems
America’s road systems are in need of updating, and as they age, more damage is likely to develop. Some of the most common flaws in our roads include:
- Cracks and potholes in the road surface. These often sizeable holes can cause severe damage to the tires, wheels, and axles on your car, as well as potentially injuring you.
- Loose asphalt. As roads break down, it’s not uncommon for parts of the road surface to come loose and litter the area. These pieces can cause cars to lose traction and skid.
- Construction and repair equipment. When not in use, construction and repair equipment is often left on the side of the road, or even in a blocked-off lane. Though ostensibly out of the way, if not marked properly, this equipment can cause serious accidents.
If you have been injured because of poorly maintained roads, someone else may be liable. To learn how we can help you get the compensation you deserve, contact the Wisconsin car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874.
