Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Not all negligence that causes car accidents stems from another driver. Every year, numerous victims are harmed in accidents caused by dangerous road conditions. When Utah residents get behind the wheel, they do so believing that the streets and highways they are about to drive on were not only designed but also maintained with their safety in mind.
Some of the hazardous conditions that could potentially justify legal action where dangerous road conditions are concerned include:
- Uncollected debris or defects in the roadway that are known to UDOT representatives or officials
- Construction crews or utility workers fail to obey important safety standards and guidelines when working and fail to properly maintain their equipment
- An inherently unsafe road design, including inclines that are dangerous in inclement weather
- Poorly designed or unmarked bike lanes, especially close to traffic circles
- A poor or obstructed line of sight at an intersection
- An absent or damaged guardrail
- No or insufficient warning signals or signs such as the ones required at railway crossings
Hazardous road conditions can also include obstructed or improper signage, inadequate lighting, poor road construction, unsafe speed limits, malfunctioning stoplights, potholes, uneven asphalt, and more.
Depending on the cause of the accident, a town, county, utility company, or construction company may be responsible for your injuries. When these entities fail to develop and upkeep roadways and their surrounding areas in a safe manner, dangerous accidents can happen.
