Types of Hazardous Road Conditions

If you drive on North Carolina roads, you know that some of them are marred by crumbling pavement, cracks, and potholes. These road defects can damage your tires and axle, causing you to lose control of your vehicle.

Some of the most common types of road hazards include:

  • Potholes: No pavement can withstand the forces of Mother Nature year after year. It is generally the responsibility of the town or city to ensure that potholes are repaired.
  • Missing or damaged guardrails: The lack of a proper guardrail can cause you to hit a tree or pole or drive off a cliff.
  • Uneven pavement: Roadways may become uneven either because they are under construction or because of damage from traffic and weather. Regardless of why the pavement is uneven, it can cause damage to your vehicle and injury to you and your passengers.
  • Lack of centerlines: If road markings are missing or obscured, you and other drivers are likely to have trouble navigating the road.

Note that this list represents only some of the myriad road hazards that may be responsible for your accident. At Lanier Law Group, we can conduct an exhaustive investigation into the cause of your accident and, whenever appropriate, begin immediately compiling evidence to support your claim.

Who Is Liable for Hazardous Road Accidents?

As previously mentioned, road hazards typically fall under the responsibility of local governments and/or municipalities. However, this is not always the case.

At Lanier Law Group, we are experienced in and skilled at investigating and identifying liable parties in road hazard accident claims. These parties may include:

  • The city/local government
  • The state government
  • The federal government
  • A public agency
  • A private business, such as a construction or landscaping company

The specific factors involved in your situation will point to who is liable for your accident and the resulting injuries. For example, if you hit a pothole at a high speed on an interstate highway, the state of North Carolina may be liable. Or, if equipment falls from a construction truck, hitting your car and causing you to collide with another vehicle, the owner/operator of that private truck may be liable.

Our North Carolina road hazard accident lawyers can look at all of the various circumstances involved in your case, gather pertinent evidence, and build a solid case that supports your claim.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
