Danville Objects on Roadway Attorneys
Although many car accidents are caused by driver error, others happen as a result of circumstances that are out of a driver’s hands. When objects litter a roadway, drivers usually must swerve and slam the breaks suddenly in order to avoid hitting or running over them. If a vehicle spins out of control, a serious accident could occur. Additionally, if multiple cars have insufficient time to react to the situation, several drivers could become involved in an accident and even more serious injuries could occur.
Accidents of this nature can be damaging, expensive, and even fatal. Local municipalities are responsible for keeping the roadways under their control free and clear of objects that could cause serious accidents. When they fail in this regard, they should be held accountable.
