Roads: Municipal Negligence
Americans are an incredibly diverse population, flung across great distances and varying landscapes. We rejoice in our differences, and we enjoy nothing more than seeing the country from on the road. As such, it is incredibly important, both on the highway and in the cities and towns, that the roads and streets are maintained appropriately. If this is not done, for whatever reason, terrible car accidents can occur.
It is up to our government, using our tax dollars, to build and repair roads on which we can drive. This infrastructure is not just a matter of concrete and asphalt, it concerns our well being. If you have been hurt in an accident caused by the failure of a municipality to build a safe roadway or to address maintenance needs, contact the Des Moines car accident attorneys at , by calling 877-327-2600 today.
The problems associated with hazardous road conditions are only avoided by responsible action by our government. Sometime bureaucracies get tied up with red tape. In these cases, it can delay the release of funds by the government to the entities that provide us with:
- Road signs
- Pothole repair
- Lane leveling
- Lane painting
- Guardrail repair
If these services aren’t provided, it isn’t a matter of if, but when dangerous driving conditions will ensue. In places with harsh weather or a good deal of traffic, this can happen over a very short amount of time.
It is important that you are rightfully compensated for your injuries and other damages as the victim of a car accident caused by municipal negligence. Contact the Des Moines roadway defect lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling 877-327-2600.
