In 2004, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Study published the results of a study entitled The Safety Impact of Vehicle-Related Road Debris. In that study, researchers found that vehicle-related road debris could cause about 25,000 accidents a year and approximately 80-90 deaths each year.
Vehicle-related road debris is clearly not one of the primary causes of car accidents. Yet, if you have ever hit an object on the road or had an airborne object hit your car then you know that debris is not a trivial issue. It can result in serious accidents. It does result in deaths.
Accordingly, if you have been involved in a roadway debris accident in Wisconsin, Iowa, or Illinois, then it is important to contact an experienced Milwaukee car accident lawyer who is not afraid to take on the hard cases, who is ready to investigate what happened to you, and who will fight hard for your fair and just recovery.
