Cedar Rapids Water Pooling Lawyers
As a state that is no stranger to intense rain and flooding, driving in the midst of a downpour and with a slick road surface is nothing new to Iowa motorists. Driving slower than usual and ensuring that one’s tires have adequate tread that can continue to maintain a steady grip when wet are the two most direct ways that one can protect against needless water-related car accidents. But neither of those measures is likely to help a driver to avoid the havoc that a pooled collection of water on the road can wreak.
Water pooling may occur due to potholes or improperly built roadways that have grooves or uneven surfaces that allow fallen rain and water from other sources to gather. These pools are dangerous and can render a car uncontrollable. To seek financial compensation for damages sustained due to a highway defect, contact the Cedar Rapids water pooling lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424.
Automobile Accident Injuries
A deep pool of water on a road surface can not only cause a tire to lose traction, but it can also slow the rotation of the wheel. These are dangerous interferences with the only points of contact between the car and the road and can easily cause a driver to lose control of a vehicle. Accidents triggered by water pooling may result in:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Fractured Bones
- Neck and Back Injuries
- Internal Organ Damage
