Dangerous Road Conditions Lawsuits

Dangerous road conditions play a large part in vehicle accidents. An unsafe highway condition exists were there is a defective design, defective construction, improper maintenance or failure to keep the road safe during inclement weather.

A Massachusetts personal injury attorney will determine if one or all of these situations was the cause of the accident in which you or your family were injured.

Entities that plan and build roadways have a near constant obligation to prevent harm from road conditions, such that the state of the highway will not harm a safe driver. The entity is put on notice that vehicles are at risk of getting into car accidents on their highways for a multitude of reasons. And those reasons that the government can control, they should. Therefore, one way to establish that the highway was dangerous is to prove that the entity did not act in such a way as to keep these foreseeable incidents from taking place.

The government or entity responsible for roadways can do many things to keep them safe. Recovery zones should be implemented that allow a driver who veers off the highway to return to the lane. Guard rails are certainly important because they keep dangerous conditions off the roads – vegetation, poles, wires. The government must provide adequate signals and signs that aid in keeping its drivers safe.
