Poor Road Maintenance and Accident Risks
Municipalities are responsible for maintaining the roads that fall within their jurisdiction. If road problems are not addressed, they can worsen over time and cause defects that could put drivers at risk of an accident.
If you or someone you know has been hurt in an accident caused by a road defect, the municipality may be held legally responsible for any injuries and damage caused by a lack of maintenance.
