Pursuing Road Defect Claims
When municipalities or construction companies are negligent in their duty to maintain the safety of public roads and the section of roadway under construction, respectively, they put drivers at an elevated risk of serious accident. As such, when accidents do result from some roadway defect, a municipality or construction company may very often be found to be responsible for any associated damages. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a road defect in the Fort Worth area, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney as early as you possibly can.
Common Road Defects
Poorly maintained roadways pose a significant threat to drivers whose attention is more directly drawn by surrounding traffic. Aside from often causing extensive property damages, these accidents can contribute to dangerous accidents and severe injury. Among the most commonly cited road defects are:
- Shoulder Drop-off
- Uneven Pavement
- Lack of Signs
- Lack of Guardrails
Victims of road defects should not be held responsible for any resulting expenses, including medical bills and lost wages. Discuss your legal options for pursuing restitution with a Fort Worth attorney.
