road maintenance and accidentsOften times, motorists are injured or killed from the poor design or maintenance (or both) of a roadway. A large number of bridges, overpasses, ramps and intersections need updating and repairs. In these instances, the entity that designed, constructed and maintains the road, may be accountable for any dangerous and defective conditions that cause a serious accident.

Some conditions include:

  • Lack of guardrails and shoulders
  • Improper barriers
  • Obstructive telephone and utility poles
  • Narrow bridges
  • Obstacles in the road
  • Poor drainage
  • Potholes
  • Rough or unpaved roads
  • Improper grading
  • Trees and other foliage blocking traffic signs
  • Malfunctioning traffic lights
  • Construction site violations
  • Defective traffic design or road defects

One of the hardships surround special protection, because some of these entities are a part of the government. However, there are claims that can waive the immunity. As a result, actions for damages based on dangerous or defective road conditions, requires immediate attention to collect the appropriate amount of evidence at the time of the accident.
