    Whenever we sit behind the wheel of a car and head to pastures new or not so new, we take the risk of encountering a hazard. This could be caused by a reckless or distracted driver. Coping with the unpredictable actions of other drivers is bad enough. We should not have to battle with poorly maintained roads as well. Dangerous terrain surely has to be the cherry on the top of all driving hazards.

    Some roads are in such dire need of repair, they should be sealed off. It is the duty of an owner, the council or local government to ensure that drivers are protected from such conditions. Blame is apportioned when the person responsible is aware of such dangers yet chooses to do very little about it. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident which stemmed from a badly maintained road, a personal injury lawyer will look at various aspects to see if you have a strong case for seeking compensation.

    The first area to look at will be the frequency of accidents which have occurred in this same region. Secondly, it will be important to launch an investigation to discover if citizens within the vicinity brought this matter to the attention of those responsible.  Any documentation which proves that the issue was raised will certainly work in the victim’s favour. This should be followed up with written evidence that links the accident directly to the condition of the road.

    A personal injury lawyer will be looking for evidence of deep potholes, weak road drainage (which could cause floods) and icy patches. Even a winding stretch of road which does not have clear markings could take a driver by surprise.

    Ensuring that victory will be yours!
