Danville Water Pooling Lawyers
The introduction of major highway systems to the US decades ago allowed more people to travel further in shorter times. They help in innumerable ways. Drivers can reach their destinations more quickly, and goods can be transported in fairly short order. However, sometimes the agencies responsible for roadway construction and maintenance fail to ensure that they are safe. One consequence of this negligence is allowing depressions to remain which facilitate the pooling of water, creating a dangerous hazard for motorists.
If you have been hurt in an accident resulting from an encounter with water gathered on the road surface, it is likely that this was caused by poor design or maintenance. Accordingly, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for vehicle repairs, medical bills, and other pertinent damages.

Dangers of Water Pooling
Poor design, lack of maintenance, or construction projects can cause water to unexpectedly pool in the roadway. When a vehicle’s tire makes contact with a pool of water, it compromises the grip of that tire on the roadway, and if the pool is deep enough it can even create a momentary difference in the speed at which the wheels rotate. These effects can cause a motorist to lose control of his or her vehicle, possibly leading to:
- Departure from the roadway
- Collision with another vehicle
- Collision with a fixed object
- Collision with a pedestrian
