Louisville Water Pooling Lawyer

Whether due to rainfall, a busted fire hydrant, broken water main, or other cause, wet roads can be very dangerous for motorists. Not only can wet roads be slick, they can also cause pools of water to form, especially if the roadway isn’t properly designed or constructed. The majority of roads are built with a slight slope or grade so water can flow off the road surface and into the gutters. When these grades are not present or other road features prevent proper draining, water can build up in certain areas of the road and increase the risk of a vehicle hydroplaning.

If you or someone you know has been in a car accident because of excessive water pooling, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. To learn more about how a skilled attorney can represent you and protect your rights, contact a Louisville water pooling lawyer at the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050 to discuss your particular case.

Hydroplaning and Other Risks

Wet roadways always present an inherent danger to motorists, as it greatly increases the risk of a driver hydroplaning. Hydroplaning occurs when water gets between the tire and road, causing the car to lose traction and possibly become unmanageable. If you have been injured in an accident caused by water pooling, you may be able to collect compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma

When a government agency fails in their duty to provide you with a safe road and causes you to have an accident due to hydroplaning as a result, you should be able to hold them financially accountable for their negligence.
