Wausau Municipal Negligence Attorney

The taxes we pay are meant to serve a variety of purposes for the overall well-being of our local community, state, and nation. A significant portion of taxpayer money goes to the designing, building, and upkeep of highways and roads. Thus, taxpayers should be able to rely on safe and well-maintained roads when they get behind the wheel. However, when municipal authorities fail to properly oversee road construction and address road deterioration and damage, it could have serious consequences for motorists.

If you or someone you love was involved in an accident due to municipal negligence in caring for the road, you could be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering as well as medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses. Contact the Wausau municipal negligence attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at 800-242-2874 to speak with an attorney who can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Consequences of Municipal Negligence

Streets and highways degrade over time due to the constant wear from traffic as well as the natural process of erosion from the elements. It is the municipality’s responsibility to correct this deterioration so that drivers are not endangered when on the roads.

When government agencies fail to care for the roads as they should, this negligence may be manifested in the following road defects:

  • Potholes
  • Uneven pavement
  • Shoulder drop-offs
  • Lack of guardrails
  • Missing traffic signs
  • Road debris

Although these may not seem like major issues, they can actually lead to severe and even fatal auto accidents.
