Water Pooling & Road Defects
When precipitation is allowed to settle into pools roadways, motorcyclists are at serious risk of accident. When a motorcycle’s wheel passes through a pool of water, it may slow that wheel and cause an imbalance in rotation speed which, in turn, may cause a motorcyclist to lose control of their bike. With that in mind, any organization responsible for maintaining the safety of any roadway must do everything they can to prevent water from pooling.
If you have been injured an accident, you should speak with an road defect attorney with The Biker Lawyers to better understand what legal actions may be available to you.
Road Defects that Allow Water Pooling
Water should never pool anywhere on a properly maintained roadway; however, negligent municipalities or other organizations who allow any of the following conditions to exist on a roadway put motorcyclists at serious risk of injury:
- Water pooling in pot holes
- Water pooling in roadways without proper drainage
- Water pooling after failing to accommodate for inclement weather
Whatever the circumstances were, The Biker Lawyers are committed to protecting the interests of motorcyclists injured in these accidents.
