Wisconsin Roadway Obstruction Attorneys
At highway speeds, all motorists and motorcyclists must pay keen attention to the roadway in front of them as there is a very small window of time in which to react to changing conditions. To put this in perspective, at a speed of 65 miles per hour, a biker is covering ground at a rate of approximately 95 1/3 feet per second, or the length of a football field every 3.15 seconds.
The presence of an object on the roadway in the path of a motorcyclist may, depending upon the terrain and the surrounding traffic, leave a motorcyclist without the ability to take evasive maneuvers. The resulting accidents can cause serious injuries. If you have been injured by careless maintenance crews or other parties, hold them accountable.

Potential obstructions and objects on the roadway that could cause an accident include:
- Fallen tree branches
- Fallen utility poles
- Debris from prior accidents
- Construction debris
- Cargo that has fallen off of another vehicle
It is imperative that the parties responsible for keeping the roadway free of dangerous obstructions uphold their obligation. The effects of any motorcycle accident can be extraordinarily problematic for a rider, even if he or she is wearing a helmet and all other appropriate safety equipment at the time of the crash. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractured bones, and internal organ damage are only some of the possible injuries that one might sustain.
If your life has been affected by a motorcycle accident due to road obstructions, you may be eligible to receive compensation from the party responsible. Our Wisconsin roadway obstruction lawyers are ready to fight for you and your family.
Let us help you to identify and pursue the financial compensation to which you may be entitled if you have been the victim of a roadway defect caused by municipal negligence. Contact the Wisconsin objects in road attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
