Dangerous Road Defects in Atlanta

While most drivers take the condition of the road for granted, road defects have the potential to result in a number of dangerous car accidents. On most public roads, it is the responsibility of the local municipality to maintain their safety; however, within constructions zones, it may be that the construction company is responsible for maintaining the safety of the roadways in and around the Atlanta metro area.

Common Road Defects

Typically, it is the local municipality or a construction company that is responsible for maintaining the safety of Atlanta’s roadways, thereby preventing the following road defects from causing a dangerous accident:

  • Shoulder drop-off
  • Water pooling
  • Potholes
  • Uneven pavement
  • Lack of signs
  • Lack of guardrails
  • Objects on roadway
  • Construction negligence
  • Municipal negligence

Car accidents resulting from any of these road defects may potentially be very dangerous; our legal team may help you pursue financial restitution for any of the damages associated with your car accident as the result of a road defect.
