Can Improperly Maintained Road Surroundings Be the Cause of Your Car Accident?
According to an NHTSA report, road surroundings can cause single-vehicle crashes. And this is in a normal, well-maintained situation. Thus, a badly maintained road surrounding can definitely trigger a single-vehicle crash or even a multi-vehicle crash. So, if you suspect that your car accident was caused by a badly maintained road, what can you do? If you are injured, you can choose to file a personal injury claim against the state or local government agency that is supposed to be responsible for highway management.
