What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Shoulder Drop-Off Accident Lawyer

The shoulder of the road is meant to provide a safe area for malfunctioning or swerving motor vehicles.
Unfortunately, if it is poorly designed or negligently maintained, it may cause major accidents as well
as – or instead of – preventing them. One common problem with roads’ shoulders is an excessively steep
difference in height between the road itself and the shoulder.

If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, you may have grounds for a legal claim against
the party that built or maintained that road. To learn more about your options, call Jacksonville shoulder
drop-off accident attorney Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088.

Shoulder Drop-Off Injuries

If a shoulder’s drop-off is too steep, or if the shoulder has other defects such as being poorly maintained
or made with a very different material than the road, it can be dangerous to drivers of all kinds. A
driver who hits a sudden decline or change in pavement texture may experience:

  • Loss of control over the vehicle’s steering
  • A rollover accident
  • Damage to the car’s steering, braking, or other systems
  • Collision with another vehicle or other object

Accidents like these can cause major injuries to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Motor vehicle
accidents are leading causes of catastrophic injuries such as brain or spinal cord damage, severe burn
injuries, and even tragic fatalities. If your life has been affected by injuries like these due to a
poorly maintained or built road, Jacksonville shoulder drop-off injury attorney Don Guthrie is here
to help.
