FALL RIVER (WKOW) -- A relatively new state law limits civil court options for a man blinded on a Wisconsin road.
A Capital Times report says the state's pothole-liability law makes it harder for Kevin Droz to sue. He was blinded in one eye when a chunk of concrete blasted through his windshield while he was driving on I-39 somewhere between the Beltline and Highway 151 last April.
The law took effect last spring and requires a driver to prove negligence when suing a local government for injuries resulting from highway defects.
