Wisconsin Shoulder Drop-Off Attorneys
When the paved surface of the road meets the unpaved surface, the height difference between the two is called the shoulder drop-off. This height difference must be kept at a minimum, as even a small drop-off can cause a serious accident to occur when a driver veers too close to the edge and one side of the vehicle falls off the road. Whether the driver is forced to over correct or runs off the road as a result, the municipal body responsible for ensuring the safety of the road may be held liable for a resulting accident and injuries.
Making sure shoulder drop-offs do not endanger motorists is a public safety responsibility. When municipal authorities fail to maintain the integrity of the road, serious injuries can occur. If you or someone you love was injured due to a shoulder drop-off, contact a Wisconsin shoulder drop-off attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to discuss your legal options.
Shoulder Drop-Off Effects
Shoulder drop-offs occur most often at turns in the road. However, when someone accidentally goes over a shoulder drop-off, whether it is dangerously high or not, a number of things may happen, including:
- Loss of control of the vehicle
- Tire blowout
- Damage to the car’s wheel or axis
- Rollover accidents
Studies have shown that it may only take a three inch drop at a ninety degree angle to cause a severe car accident in which innocent drivers and passengers are injured.
