Who’s to blame for road defects?
When a person is injured because of road defects, they may be entitled to hold the government agency responsible for attending to that road accountable for their injury costs. Accidents caused by a road defect, even if including vehicle-to-vehicle collisions as a result of that defect, may be considered the fault of the applicable government department. Depending on the road, this agency may be a municipal or state agency.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by road defects, you may be eligible to file a compensation claim against the responsible government agency.
