What are some examples of road hazards?
Car accidents can happen for a number of different reasons. One common cause of a motor vehicle accident is road hazards or objects in the roadway that should not be there. These objects can pose a threat to motorists who may crash into them or lose control of a vehicle when swerving out of the way to avoid a collision. Common road hazards include pot holes, tree limbs, debris from construction sites, and even broken down cars.
Municipal agencies and construction crews are responsible for taking action to ensure roadways are clear and safe for drivers. If they don’t, you can take legal action and hold them responsible.
