Local municipalities are responsible for maintaining roads that are safe for drivers to use. A large part of this duty means that they are required to provide routine maintenance to account for the constant wear that these roads endure. When they ignore these responsibilities, they are allowing hazardous road conditions to develop which put drivers at risk of suffering accidents.
If you have been injured in an accident due to a municipality’s negligent road maintenance, you should be able to hold them liable for the injustices they have committed against you.

Municipal negligence can be attributed to city governments when they do not sufficiently maintain their roads or alert drivers by using signs when they are unable to provide repairs. Some of the common road defects that require repairs or warning signs are:
Drivers have little to no control over the safety of the roads they use, and trust their city government to take appropriate measures to ensure that those roads do not put anyone at risk. Local municipalities should be held accountable when avoidable accidents from defects such as these cause innocent drivers to suffer injuries.
