Fort Lauderdale Road Hazards

In Fort Lauderdale, road hazards contribute to an already stressful driving situation. In Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and the rest of South Florida, driving is already stressful thanks to the morning commute, heavy traffic, and other dangers. When you add in potholes, wheel ruts, debris on the roads, and other road dangers, the result is not only more stress and more driver aggression, but also a greater risk of car and truck accidents. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to debris on the roads as well as to uneven roads and wheel ruts.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have worked extensively with personal injury plaintiffs, including those who have been injured in car accident and truck accident cases. We understand how difficult it is to go through the pain and trauma of a serious accident and then to feel severe stress about financial compensation for your injuries. It's why we make the process of getting legal advice about your situation so simple. You can always reach us at any time of the day to arrange a free consultation to discuss your case with one of our personal injury attorneys.

How Do Road Hazards Lead To Car Accidents?

There are many types of road hazards that can lead to serious accidents and injuries:

  • Potholes
  • Uneven roads
  • Poorly designed roads
  • Malfunctioning or missing traffic signals
  • Narrow lanes
  • Poor visibility due to overgrown bushes and trees
  • Debris on the road
  • Road construction with poor signage
  • Road construction that leaves debris and other dangers on the road
  • Poorly maintained roads

Unfortunately, these types of issues can affect everyone. They are especially common as a cause of motorcycle accidents in Fort Lauderdale and other communities, since motorcyclists may be more affected by potholes and uneven road conditions. However, even someone in a car can easily be in a fatal or serious car accident due to poorly designed roads that do little to prevent serious accidents.

Getting Justice After A Serious Car Accident

if you have been in a serious car accident, your first priority will be to get emergency medical help for yourself and for everyone else who has been injured. You will also want to report the accident. However, one of the first calls you should make is to a personal injury attorney. Being in a car accident is not just an insurance process – it's also a legal one. A personal injury attorney can give you legal advice and can help steer you in the right direction so that you have the best chance to secure fair compensation.

Have you been injured in a car accident in Fort Lauderdale or anywhere in South Florida? You deserve justice and you deserve answers about your accident.
