Coral Gables Road Hazards
Drivers know that in order to stay safe on the roads, they need to stay alert for unexpected road hazards.

However, road hazards such as debris, potholes, and missing manhole covers are often preventable hazards and may point to negligence.

Many of us see potholes and other road dangers as simply part and parcel of driving. We may complain about the state or roads, but we don’t always think of the real dangers of debris on roadways, for example. The reality, however, is that road hazards can lead to serious car accidents and injuries such as:
- Fractures and broken bones
- Disfigurement and facial injuries
- Whiplash and soft tissue injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and back injuries
- Seizure disorders
These injuries can cause severe pain and suffering as well as months or even a lifetime of recovery time.Permanent Injuries After a Car Accident can Devastate Your Life
Permanent injuries can result in devastation for entire families. These injuries can end up costing families tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or in some cases even millions of dollars over the lifetime of the patient. In many cases, households lose an income earner and face the emotional upheaval, upset, and fears that often come with a serious injury.
