In the situation that a stretch of road poses an unnecessary risk due to poor design or construction and a result, accidents have occurred, the road is considered defective and may be deemed unsafe due to the fault of the construction crew, government, contractors, or other parties involved in the road’s creation.
Any accidents caused by the unsafe conditions on the road are the responsibility of the negligent party. If you have been injured through the defective condition of a roadway, you can turn to an experienced attorney for legal representation.
