What are road hazards?
Motor vehicle accidents are not always caused by driver error or other reckless actions. In fact, there are many car accidents that are simply beyond any driver’s control. Road hazards or objects left in the road can pose a significant threat to a driver’s safety. Not only can motorists hit these objects, but they may also cause an accident by swerving to miss them. Some examples of road hazards include the following:
- Broken tree limbs
- Equipment or other items left from construction sites
When municipal agencies or construction crews fail to remove these objects from the roadway in a timely and appropriate manner, you may be able to take legal action against them.
