Over time, roads will wear down and develop defects from heavy weather and constant traffic. Local municipalities are responsible for maintaining their roads and repairing any defects that may occur in order to prevent such road hazards from causing an accident. Unfortunately, municipal governments do not always provide the road maintenance that they are obligated to give, allowing road defects to develop and pose a risk to innocent drivers.
If a municipal government’s negligent road maintenance caused you to suffer an injury from a car accident, you may be able to hold that governmental body liable for your medical treatments, repair bills, and other losses.
