Roadway Defects and Motorcyclists
There is simply no reasonable comparison between the safety features and protections that are in place on most passenger vehicles and those that are available to motorcyclists. This leaves riders highly susceptible to severe injury in the case of accidents, and this is enough to dissuade many individuals from ever choosing to ride a motorcycle. A well-trained and attentive motorcyclist can usually ride without incident, but there are situations in which it is virtually impossible for a biker to avoid calamity. Roadway defects, while a threat to those in cars or trucks, can be disastrous for motorcyclists.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a roadway defect, it may be possible to pursue a civil lawsuit against the negligent roadway construction company or municipal entity that failed to provide a safe street or highway for your use.

Frequent Highway Defects
The nature of the threat that is posed to a motorcyclist’s safety depends upon the kind of roadway defect that he or she encounters. Some might throw a rider off of a bike; others may put a motorcyclist in the path of oncoming traffic; and others still may cause a rider to completely lose control of a motorcycle. Common highway defects include:
- Uneven pavement
- Lack of guardrails
- Shoulder drop-off
- Lack of signs
- Water pooling
- Obstructed roadways
We are passionately committed to ensuring that our clients obtain the full range of financial compensation that they are due when they have suffered injuries caused by roadway defects. Contact the Wisconsin motorcycle accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
