Kankakee Municipal Negligence Lawyers
Driving in the United States is a surprisingly dangerous undertaking, and even the roads themselves can become hazards. Municipal authorities are responsible for adequately maintaining the streets and highways which motorists use to commute every day, and when they fail in this obligation it can result in a degradation of the road’s quality to the point that an accident may become inevitable.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused or worsened by a defect in the roadway, you may be able to hold the municipality responsible for its failure to render adequate maintenance. Contact the experienced Kankakee municipal negligence attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., by calling (815) 929-9292 today for a consultation to discuss the details of your case.
Without proper and consistent maintenance, dangerous conditions can arise on roadways that may directly cause or worsen the effects of an accident. A few of the services expected of municipalities are:
- Maintaining even pavement levels
- Removing debris, roadkill, and other obstacles
- Posting appropriate warning signs and guardrails
- Repairing potholes
- Providing road treatments such as salt or sand in snowy and icy conditions
A municipality which fails to provide these services has been negligent and may be found to bear legal responsibility for the effects of a crash which resulted from such a failure.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that resulted from a lack of proper and adequate road services, you may be entitled to compensation for you medical expenses and other damages.
