First of all, statistically negligent drivers cause most car accidents. But, did you know unsafe roads can also lead to a car accident? In fact, these crashes are most notably after severe weather. So, if you suspect unsafe road conditions contributed to your accident, we can help.
Driving Hazards that Make Unsafe Road Conditions
Next, Florida residents know severe storms occur almost daily during the summer months. Not to mention, the weather we get from hurricane season. As a result, these storms produce a variety of unsafe road conditions. Thus, the following are some of the most common hazards.
- Slippery Roads
- Tree limbs and leaves
- Debris in the road
- Deteriorated shoulders
While each of these hazards is avoidable in some instances. Unfortunately, not all drives are lucky when they encounter one of these conditions. In fact, the unlucky one can lose control of the vehicle and even crash into another car.
Legal Options for Unsafe Road Accidents
Lastly, anyone injured in an auto accident due to unsafe road conditions can receive compensation. Despite, having protection from most lawsuits, you can sue a government agency. Actually, the Federal Tort Claims Act allows for these claims. Especially, when an injury occurs due to unsafe roads.
But, not every accident from an unsafe road condition constitutes a lawsuit. For this reason, it becomes the burden of the plaintiff to provide proof of neglect. Furthermore, to hold them responsible they need to know about the issue. Plus, they would need time to assess and fix the problem.
For example, if you drive your vehicle during or after a hurricane. And, during this drive, you have an accident due to debris in the road. In this case, you cannot blame them as you took the risk of going out during these extreme conditions. And, they have not had enough time to assess the roads.
