What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Uneven Pavement Accident

Road surfaces undergo a great deal of wear and tear over time. If they are not properly maintained, they can develop cracks, dips in elevation, and other changes in texture. These flaws do not only create an unpleasant appearance; they can actually be dangerous to motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by uneven pavement, you may be able to win compensation for your medical expenses, missed days of work, and other losses. The Jacksonville uneven pavement accident lawyers of the Law Offices of Donald Guthrie will work closely with you at every step of the legal process. To schedule an initial consultation, call our offices at 904-296-1088.

Consequences of Negligent Road Maintenance

The responsibility for maintaining a road or highway may fall on a private contractor, local government, or federal agency. If any of these parties fails to monitor roadway conditions and repair damage as it occurs, innocent people may suffer from accidents like:

  • Changes in tire traction caused by sudden changes in pavement texture
  • Steering errors caused by sudden dips, bumps, or texture changes in the road
  • Pedestrian trip and fall accidents, which can cause or contribute to car accidents
  • Driver distraction caused by unexpected and severe pavement changes

Defects like these often cause or contribute to major motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, insurance settlements are not always adequate to compensate victims for their many related losses. If you are struggling to receive fair repayment for a road defect accident, our Jacksonville uneven pavement injury lawyers are here to help.
