Common and Dangerous Highway Defects

Common and Dangerous Highway Defects

Roadway defects are responsible for a number of car accidents every year in the U.S. Unfortunately, these accidents often result in injury to innocent drivers who believed that the roads they were navigating were safe and properly maintained. However, the municipality in charge of that particular stretch of road might have been inattentive or careless, and failed to maintain the road or repair damage, ultimately making them responsible for the resulting accident. While there are a number of different road defects, there are certain ones that tend to be more common.

7 Common Defects

Highways can be dangerous in and of themselves, but are even more so when they are defective. Some of the most common – and most dangerous – road defects include:

  • Potholes
  • Shoulder Drop-Off
  • Uneven Pavement
  • Lack of Signs
  • Lack of Guardrails
  • Roadway Obstructions
  • Water Pooling

These highway defects can pose huge dangers for those who are driving on the defective road. But victims of municipal negligence, which is the top cause of highway defects, might be due financial compensation from these negligent parties, allowing them to recover without financial burdens hanging over them.
