Hazardous road conditions lead to tens of thousands of accidents every year. These conditions include unsafe guard rails, slippery roads due to bad weather, inadequate or inappropriate road design, bad lighting, debris in lanes of traffic, and badly marked constructions zones.
Whether you're driving a car, truck or motorcycle you can be affected by dangerous and hazardous road conditions. The last thing you expect is to be in a serious car accident over faulty road design. Many of these dangerous conditions should not be there to begin with and you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.
Making a Claim Under the Federal Tort Claims Act
Under the Federal Tort Claims Act you can make a claim for a negligent act. Under the FTCA, the federal government acts as a self-insurer, and recognizes liability for the negligent or wrongful acts or omissions of its employees acting within the scope of their official duties. An experienced dangerous roads lawyer will understand the difficulties dealing with the federal government.
Typical Hazardous Road Conditions
- Loose rocks and gravel
- Road debris
- Potholes & road resurfacing
- Overgrown trees and bushes blocking view
- Signs and signals in disrepair
- Bad lighting
- Unsafe construction zones
These dangerous road conditions lead to accidents all the time, some very serious like spinal cord injuries, permanent back damage, head injuries and lifelong brain damage. Regardless of the nature of your hazardous road accident, you may want to consult an attorney to determine whether you can recoup damages for your personal injury.
In many cases, hazardous road conditions coexist with other liability factors. For instance, a negligent or speeding driver may have dodged debris and driven your car off the road. In such cases, you may be able to collect damages from either (or both) the negligent driver and the entity responsible for maintaining the road.
