Morristown New Jersey New Dangerous Roadways Attorneys

Dangerous roadways a common cause of car accidents

Auto accidents happen every day throughout New Jersey, with distracted drivers leading the way as the main source of accidents. Sometimes, however, it is the roadways themselves that were the cause of an accident. At Leonard Law, our New Jersey accident lawyers help victims recover compensation when unforeseen dangerous road conditions cause accidents and injury.

Dangerous road conditions that are hazardous to drivers

Driving cautiously can only do so much to prevent accidents. There is a responsibility for those that maintain roadways to keep them safe and warn drivers about potential hazards. A lack of action can create just as much financial liability as a purposeful action. The most important factor is whether the condition was the cause of the accident. Construction crews and governing officials are often negligent of these duties, ultimately causing injuries to drivers. Our New Jersey accident attorneys recover compensation for you when you have been harmed due to an unsafe roadway. The most common types of unsafe conditions on roads that lead to accidents include:

  • Potholes
  • Overgrown bushes or plant life that obstruct views of traffic
  • Uneven roads
  • Missing signs
  • Lack of warning signs
  • Curves without warning
  • Construction refuse
  • Lack of shoulders
  • Incorrect signs
  • Lack of guardrails
  • Improper drainage causing water to pool on the roadway

Proving governmental fault in an automobile accident

Blaming the government for causing a roadway to be dangerous is a challenging lawsuit. These defendants have unlimited resources and a strong governmental system on their side to avoid having to pay victims of their negligence. You need an experienced New Jersey auto accident attorney with the skill and experience necessary to succeed in one of these cases. Our attorneys build comprehensive cases that convincingly prove fault, so our clients get the compensation they deserve.
