Government Liability Extends to Roadway Accidents that Result from Poor Roadway Conditions

County and state highway departments are obligated to maintain adequate road conditions to ensure safe driving for citizens. Unfortunately, governmental agencies occasionally fail to properly design or maintain roadways, leading to car accidents. Examples of such poor design and maintenance on behalf of government agencies include:

  • Poorly designed roadways, exit ramps and parking lots
  • Inadequate or improperly maintained signs
  • Improperly designed pedestrian crosswalks
  • Drops in pavement edges
  • Potholes
  • Improperly marked construction zones
  • Railway grade crossings

Drivers and passengers injured in car accidents resulting from governmental negligence or improper highway design can hold the government liable for their injuries. To receive damages for such injuries, the accident victim must demonstrate that the roadway presented a dangerous condition to drivers and that this dangerous condition was due to the negligence of a governmental agency.
