Missouri Hazardous Roadway Car Crash Attorneys

Hazardous Roadways

Hazardous roadway conditions play roles in thousands of accidents every year. Although drivers assume certain responsibilities when they get behind the wheel, owners/caretakers of roads also must reasonably ensure the safety of motor vehicle operators and their passengers.

What are Common Dangerous Road Hazards?

Common dangerous road hazards include:

  • Pot holes
  • Ruts
  • Poorly marked shoulders
  • Loose rock and gravel
  • Oil on the road
  • Badly marked work zones
  • Badly marked intersections
  • Improper or malfunctioning signage
  • Poor lighting
  • Poor road geometry
  • Debris in lanes
  • Bad weather or acts of God.

Just because you get injured on a hazardous road doesn’t mean that you should automatically sue for liability. Extenuating circumstances may exist. For instance, if your car skidded off the road during an ice storm, you could have a case against the person/entity charged with salting and de-icing the roads.

Driver Liability in Missouri

Your actions will also impact the viability of your Missouri car crash claim. To what extent was your driving erratic, reckless, or negligent? Did you obey all posted signs? Were you driving the speed limit? Were you reasonably compensating for visible hazards?
