For the safety and security of every driver, bicyclist, motorcyclist, and pedestrian on the road, it’s critical that highways are maintained by the local municipalities assigned to oversee them. Unfortunately, all too often municipal entities are found to be negligent in highway maintenance and allow dangerous highway defects, such as water pooling, to occur. Water pooling puts drivers in a precarious situation, as drivers who come across an area of collected water unexpectedly may not be able to adjust their driving in time to avoid the pool, leading to a serious accident and potentially serious injuries.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of water pooling or another highway defect, you could be eligible to receive financial compensation from the municipal agency responsible for causing your suffering.

Dangers of Water Pooling
Water pooling can pose a great danger to unsuspecting drivers. Such a situation could lead to:
- Sliding into oncoming traffic
- Loss of vehicular control
- Rollover accidents
- Collision with property
All of these accidents could pose serious threats to an innocent driver’s safety and overall health. Sometimes the costs of a highway accident are so great that many people cannot afford to pay for the necessary treatment, but a personal injury lawsuit may be one way that a victim of a highway defect can obtain compensation to cover these expenses.
