Dangerous roads are a major problem all across America, including in California. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are particularly at risk when it comes to large potholes and uneven lanes. Getting hurt in a motorcycle accident can be life changing. Your injuries can be catastrophic, leaving you with a lifetime of pain and disability. To make matters worse, the medical costs can go through the roof, damaging your finances and your future wellbeing.
When your crash was caused by dangerous road conditions, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against the municipality, state government, or liable contractor to recover compensation for the damages you incurred.
However, recovering a financial settlement is difficult in this type of situation. A Sacramento dangerous road motorcycle accident lawyer from Crowell Law Offices will help you build the strongest case possible so that your can recover maximum compensation.
How Dangerous Roads Can Cause Motorcycle Wrecks
Roads in disrepair cause many of the single-vehicle crashes in California. Unfortunately, the safety of drivers is put to the wayside as low budgets cause government agencies to ignore road upkeep. What’s more frustrating is that your accident could have been prevented if the road had been properly maintained.
When a neglected road causes your motorcycle crash, you may be eligible to collect compensation from the agency responsible for the road’s maintenance. In addition, it might be possible to sue a roadwork contractor if the road you were driving on was not properly repaired.
Common road deficiencies that contribute to motorcycle accidents include the following:
Poorly graded curves, uneven shoulders, and large potholes
Icy and snowy roads not salted or plowed
Damaged or missing road signs or lack of appropriate road markings
Broken guardrails, blind curves, and poorly banked roads
Vision obstructions, such as poor landscaping
Lack of lighting at night and incorrect overhead bridge markings
Hazardous debris in the road or inappropriate road materials
Filing a lawsuit against a government entity is challenging as there may be strict time limits involved. Only an experienced motorcycle crash lawyer can help you through this type of situation and ensure that everything is done both correctly and timely.
