Defective Roadway

Injured in a Defective Roadway Accident in Nashville?

In most vehicular accidents, liability is typically found with one or more driver who caused a collision. However, in some cases, you may be able to seek compensation from a local government agency or a roadway designer.

These entities are responsible for creating roads that are safe for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians, and should take any and all measures to maintain and uphold it. Failure to do so can have deadly consequences, and our accident attorneys are ready to take action.

If you have been injured in a car accident caused by a road defect, the attorneys at Bill Easterly & Associates, want to help. We believe that government agencies who hold jurisdiction over roadways should be held to a high standard in regard to ensuring the safety of its citizens.

You should not have to suffer the financial burden of coping with an injury caused by the improper design or maintenance of a roadway.

When a Government Agency is Liable

We trust our government to help ensure our safety and well-being, especially when it comes to driving. There are numerous dangers involved with getting behind a wheel already, so it is essential that our roadways are designed as efficiently as possible to mitigate the risk of collisions.

Government agencies with jurisdiction over our roadways are responsible for investigating roads for defects and taking necessary action to correct the situation.

Examples of roadway defects include:

  • Potholes
  • Drop-offs
  • Dangerous intersections
  • Insufficient roadway planning
  • Poor traffic patterns
  • Obstructions
  • Oil Spills
  • Insufficient or lack of warning signs
  • Inadequate roadway notifications
  • Improperly designated construction zones
  • Unmaintained snow or ice
  • Poor lighting

If any of these defects existed at the scene of your accident, our personal injury attorneys will do extensive research to determine whether or not a government agency could have reasonably prevented it.

If it is determined that the agency should have been aware of the situation and could have taken measures to correct or warn against it, the failure to do so is grounds for negligence.
