Cincinnati Water Pooling Attorney
It is the responsibility of city planners and municipal departments to make sure that roads are safe for public travel. Roadways are usually graded to allow water to drain off the road, but if roadways are built without the proper grade, water can pool on the road, which can lead to dangerous driving conditions when the road become wet.
If you have been injured in an accident involving pooled water on the roadway, you may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.The Cincinnati personal injury lawyers at Stepleton & Dugan, LLC are dedicated to helping our clients receive financial compensation for damages sustained due to highway defects.

Possible Dangers of Water Pooling
Water pooling is most often caused because of construction error, and can have very dangerous consequences for drivers, such as:
- Car skidding or hydroplaning
- Complete loss of control over vehicle
- Lowered visibility due to splashing water
- Engine damage, because of water contacting spark plugs
- Inability to slow down or stop
If you are following all regular traffic laws, you hope to avoid dangerous collisions. However, sometimes highway defects cause accidents anyway, but you may be entitled to financial compensation for any injuries you might have gotten from your accident.
