Representative Highway Defects
Highway defects cause many car accidents each year in the United States, and could be easily prevented if highways were properly maintained by those responsible. Local municipal entities are in charge of maintaining roadways and highways, and if they fail in this responsibility, drivers and other users of the road may be in danger of being involved in a car accident. If you are injured in a car accident caused by a highway defect, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help cover the costs of your injuries and medical bills.

Highway Defects Which One Might Encounter
Because of overuse, highways can suffer damage in a number of ways and can quickly require repair. However, some defects are more common than others, including:
- Absence of signage
- Steep drop-offs
- Construction site obstructions
- Peeling paint
- Overgrown brush – reduced visibility
These types of highway defects occur quite often along roadways in the United States, but can be avoided if municipalities take responsibility for their prevention or resolution if they arise.
Municipal entities have a responsibility to maintain highways, and if they fail in this obligation, drivers can easily be injured.
