What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Water Pooling Injury

Wet roads can be dangerous to drive on for many different reasons. When the weather has been rainy or icy, responsible drivers take precautions to reduce their chances of a traffic accident. Unfortunately, there is no way to plan ahead for pooled water that is not expected. When water is allowed to collect in the middle of the road, drivers can easily become involved in major accidents.

If you or a member of your family has been in an accident caused by a negligently constructed or maintained road, you may be interested in pursuing fair compensation. Jacksonville water pooling accident lawyer Don Guthrie can help you gather evidence and present a compelling legal argument. Call our offices today at 904-296-1088.

Water Pooling Accidents: Causes and Consequences

Water can begin to pool in the road for many reasons, including:

  • Poorly designed roads that collect rainwater
  • Unmaintained roads that have cracks or potholes
  • Construction sites that fail to prevent water from running off into the road

To approaching drivers, a pool of water in the road may not be noticeable at all, or it may seem shallow enough to drive through. These errors in perception can cause serious accidents such as:

  • Brake failure due to water in the brakes
  • Loss of steering ability due to hydroplaning
  • Loss of control over the car due to bumps or road slickness

Innocent drivers and passengers can suffer from painful, potentially even fatal injuries when accidents like these occur. If your health or your family has been affected by such injuries, Jacksonville road defect injury attorney Don Guthrie is ready to fight for you.
