• Poor road conditions such as potholes, faulty design,
missing guardrails, erosion and other defects can cause a
serious car accident.
• Proving fault in a car accident because of a road defect can
be complicated.

• Generally, cities, counties and states are responsible for
maintaining the roads.
• Before making a claim, it is important to find out which
agency was responsible for maintaining the road.

Proving Negligence
• The victim must prove that the agency was negligent in its duty to
maintain a safe road.
• He or she must show that the agency could have or should have
repaired the road but chose not to do so.
• He or she must prove that the agency built the road in a
dangerously defective manner.

Suing a Governmental Agency
• Most state and federal governments have immunity from lawsuits.
However, if the agency was negligent in maintaining a roadway, the
victim can make a claim.
• Another regulation that limits a government agency from being sued is
the statute of li itatio s.
• If a victim fails to file a claim before a designated deadline, the court will
not allow the victim to file at a later date.

• If you have been injured in a car accident because of poor
road conditions, contact our car accident attorneys today.
• We will fight to help you recover compensation for your
