Examples of Municipal Negligence

Safe roadways are essential in the United States because of the millions of vehicles that use roadways every single day. If roadways are not kept safe by the responsible municipalities, drivers face much higher risks of car accidents and personal injuries. In instances where a municipality fails to appropriately maintain a roadway, it may actually be held financially responsible for the injuries that car accident victims sustain as a result.

In a personal injury lawsuit, victims of car accidents might be able to sue for financial compensation from irresponsible municipalities, if their negligence caused the accident. If this has happened to you, contact an experienced Racine car accident lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874.

4 Specific Examples

It’s easy to say that municipalities are responsible for maintaining roadway safety, but actually understanding what this means is much more difficult. Four specific examples of municipal negligence include:

  • Not providing warning signs in dangerous areas
  • Failure to perform construction during “low” traffic times
  • Failing to efficiently repair/replace damaged signs
  • Not preparing roadways for inclement weather

If these or other acts of municipal negligence caused you and your loved ones to be injured, you may deserve to be compensated for your injuries and losses.
