Sometimes, the driver is not the only cause of an auto accident. Poorly maintained roads and inadequate street signs may also contribute to an auto accident. Roadway defects are the cause of many car accidents in Georgia. As a result, the appropriate government entity is held responsible for car accidents that occur on defectively designed streets and roadways. If you have been injured in an auto accident because of a defective road, you may have a claim against all liable entities.
Were you injured in a car accident because of poor maintenance or a damaged road? If so, you may be eligible to file a defective road auto accident case.
To successfully recover against a public entity for a street or highway defect, you must be able to prove the following:
(1) The public entity had control over the thing that caused your damages
(2) The roadway was substandard or created an unreasonable risk of harm or injury
(3) The public entity was told or should have known about the problem and did not fix the problem within a reasonable length of time
(4) The defective or unsafe condition was the legal cause of the victim's injuries.
