Road defects are abnormalities in the road that may prevent a driver from safely operating his/her vehicle. Road defects are often the cause of vehicle accidents. There are numerous way a road can be defective and dangerous including, potholes, uncovered ditches, inadequate drainage, debris covering signs, faulty traffic lights, improper lane wide, poorly-designed on and off ramps, dangerous guardrails and barricades, shoulder drop-offs, and much more. Where negligence is attributed to any government entity, it is important to realize a claim must be initiated within 6 months of the accident.
