Unsafe or poorly designed roads can jeopardize the safety of North Carolina motorists. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a car accident that was caused by a Roadway Defect, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, damaged property and pain & suffering.
Common Roadway Defects that may indicate a road was not properly constructed or maintained include:
- Soft shoulders, meaning that the shoulder on the side of the road is made of gravel or packed dirt, rather than asphalt
- Defective guardrails
- Improper drainage that can cause the road to be slick and cause hydroplaning
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has strict guidelines to ensure that all roads, streets and highways are designed and maintained with driver safety as the top priority. If a road or highway in North Carolina fails to meet the DOT’s safety requirements, it can cause devastating injuries to motorists.
