Who is responsible for car accidents caused by road defects?
Without knowing the particular circumstances of an accident or where the accident occurred, it is extremely difficult to determine who exactly may be held financially responsible for a car accident resulting from a road defect. Usually though, it is either a local governing entity or construction company that is responsible for maintaining safe driving conditions of the public roadway. When accidents occur on privately maintained roads, it may be more difficult to determine responsibility. To learn more about the legal technicalities, discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney.
