Is the condition of a roadway vital to your safety?

As someone who often drives in, around, or through Missouri, you know of some roads that have certainly seen better days. But did you know that poorly maintained roads can actually contribute to crashes? McShane & Brady LLC can help you if you've been harmed because of a faulty road.

The condition of a roadway itself is vital to the safety of the drivers on it. Did the road you traveled on have damage such as potholes? Were there cracks or other issues? Was the road uneven? Were these known problems, and yet nothing was done to fix them?

How about the condition of roadway signs or the paint on the road itself? Some roads are so worn out that you can't even tell where the divider lines are. Others have had important messages like "slow" and "stop" driven over so many times that they can hardly be seen anymore.

Finally, the placement of roads can be an issue. Are there any sudden, sharp turns? What about unexpected hurdles? Is it a dangerous intersection where not all angles can be seen clearly? These issues are all out of your hands, but can make driving more dangerous to you.

You shouldn't have to pay for a crash when the fault is not yours. This includes when no other cars are involved, but the road itself is at fault. If you have been in this sort of situation before, take a look at our web page on car accidents for information about what to do legally and what your options are moving forward.
