Wisconsin Municipal Negligence Lawyers

Dangerous road defects often go unrepaired due to the failure of government agencies to uphold their duty to public safety. When this happens, drivers may be at greater risk for being involved in auto accidents that may leave them seriously injured.

Drivers and passengers involved in accidents as a result of dangerous road conditions may be entitled to financial compensation from the responsible municipality. For more information, contact the Wisconsin municipal negligence lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 today.

Types of Municipal Negligence

Municipal negligence occurs when municipalities do not repair roads and highways in a timely manner. In some cases, this is because the local governments in charge do not have the funds to repair roads. At minimum, the appropriate agencies must post warning signs alerting drivers of any upcoming dangers.

A complete failure to fix or otherwise warn drivers of potential road defects may leave drivers unaware of:

  • Potholes
  • Uneven pavement
  • Shoulder drop-offs
  • Damaged guardrails

These defects can cause drivers to be in serious auto accidents, especially if they did not receive sufficient warning. This can leave drivers, their passengers, and fellow motorists with severe injuries.
