Obviously, everyone plays a role in preventing car accidents caused by road hazards. Unfortunately, not all cities and communities are responsible in maintaining roads. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have dealt with many car accident cases where a road hazard such as potholes or uneven roads were known for weeks or even months but little or nothing was done to address the issue. In these cases, pursuing a legal claim can push the appropriate government entities to make important changes that can help prevent other car and motorcycle accidents in Miramar and other communities. Unfortunately, sometimes providing the government with a financial incentive to make changes is the only way to ensure that safety measures are taken seriously.Road Hazards and Negligence
Unfortunately, in some cases, it is impossible to prevent a car accident caused by road hazards. Even if drivers stay alert and avoid being distracted behind the wheel and even if they take all due precautions to drive safely, some road hazards, such as potholes, may simply not be visible in some lighting conditions. Motorists expect that cities take reasonable precautions to keep roadways safe for taxpayers and residents. When government authorities fail to do so, Florida law allows injured plaintiff to pursue justice in a civil courtroom.
