One cause of accidents that few people consider is a defect in the roadway. Defective roads can create hazardous conditions that can be just as much at fault for an accident as a careless driver. A defective road can be defective in its design, construction or maintenance. Common defects that may create hazards include:
- Potholes and unlevel road surfaces
- Extreme curves
- Eroded shoulders
- Failure to properly divert rainwater
- Failure to properly mark hazards
- Failure to maintain the roadway in a safe condition
The government may be held responsible for accidents caused by a defective road at the local, state and federal level. The businesses that designed and built that roadway may also be responsible. Not everything that is wrong with a road constitutes a defect. These cases require in-depth investigations by experts who can help make such determinations.
Pursuing a case against the government or a highway construction firm can be challenging. There are many issues that need to be identified and addressed. Ensuring that the attorneys you choose have the skill and experience necessary to help you is essential for the success of your case.
