Wisconsin Uneven Pavement Attorneys
In a sense, riding a motorcycle amplifies many things about the experience of driving a passenger car or truck. The direct contact with the rushing wind can be tremendously liberating and is the source of much of the sense of freedom that motorcyclists cite as a reason they prefer the bike. Unfortunately, this heightened state extends to the effects of other roadway factors as well, including the adverse consequences of motorcycle accidents caused by highway defects. Uneven pavement, which is potentially hazardous to a typical automobile, can be downright catastrophic for an individual who is riding a motorcycle.
The proper construction and maintenance of the roadways upon which you ride is beyond your control and instead falls under the purview of the contractor assigned to the project or a municipal or state agency charged with highway oversight. Their failure to execute these responsibilities endangers the welfare of all Wisconsin motorcyclists. If uneven pavement caused you to become involved in an accident, contact the Wisconsin uneven pavement lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
How Uneven Pavement Affects Motorcycle Operation
During the construction of a section of road or while a road is undergoing maintenance, one lane of traffic could be substantially higher or lower than the adjacent lane. This may present the following specific dangers for motorcyclists:
- Crossing in either direction over the lane separation can jar a motorcyclist and throw him or her from the bike, possibly resulting in traumatic brain injuries
- Friction between the side of a tire and the elevated lane can disrupt the rotation of a tire, causing a motorcyclist to lose control of the bike
- Contact with the elevated lane may cause a biker to over-correct in response
