When Car Accidents Are Caused By Road Hazards Or Construction Work

Roads, intersections and highways need proper maintenance. This includes reasonable and proper signs and markings that are clearly visible. In addition, barriers and guardrails need to be installed when the conditions require them. If they are not, improper maintenance can allow for ice collection or the obstruction of drivers’ sightlines.

While the majority of auto accidents are due to negligent drivers, poor road conditions and obstacles in the roadway can also cause accidents. Poor work zone maintenance, badly designed roadways and dangerous physical debris can result in serious or even fatal injury.

If you were injured in an auto accident because of road conditions or negligence of road maintenance or construction crews, you may be able to pursue a civil suit against the proper municipal entity or construction contractor.
