Car Accident on a Dangerous Road: Your Driving Safety
Although accidents on the road involve two or more vehicles, and are the result of driver error or negligence, there are other types of collisions and hazardous roadway collisions are among some of the most prevalent, involving single vehicles, and multiple vehicles, and even travelers not in a vehicle. We all expect the roadways to be safe and well-maintained, but unfortunately, design flaws of the past, and a slow moving update and maintenance system can sometimes leave you out to dry...or out to be in an accident. If you're involved in a collision caused by hazardous road conditions, you're likely to have a long recovery ahead, and you're going to need all the help you can get.
So You Were the Victim, Now What?
Many victims of these types of accidents are left thinking that they only recourse they have is to file a claim with their insurance company for comprehensive coverage. But the truth of the matter is that if you were injured in an accident that was caused, or even partly caused, by hazards on the roadway then you have rights, and you have recourse against those responsible for keeping the roads well-maintained, and those who were responsible for the hazard in other ways. For example, if your accident involved construction debris or equipment, you not only may have the right to hold the road maintenance groups accountable but also the construction company that left the debris.
What Are Common Road Hazards in Phoenix?
When you're thinking about hazardous roadways, you're thinking about pot holes and construction zones. But you're probably not thinking about all of the other types of hazards that could be awaiting you. Two of the most common hazards on the road that you probably ignore altogether, but shouldn't, are the absence of guardrails, which can keep you from going off the road in bad weather or poor lighting conditions, and the absence of adequate lighting.
Both of these hazards can cause serious problems for drivers on the road, and can result in serious injuries when they cause a crash, or contribute to one. Other major hazards on roadways include debris like trash, lost furniture from a move, and even dirt and tree branches, and also animals, like burros and cattle, walking down the side of the road. Construction machinery left on the sides of the road, or too close to the sides of the road, can also play a major role in accidents and pose a serious hazard to all types of travelers.
