Las Vegas Defective Road Accidents Lawyers

Generally speaking, when Nevada car accidents occur, they are the fault of one of the drivers involved or both.  However, there are also accidents that take place that are not the fault of any of the drivers who were part of the crash.  These situations refer to those Nevada car accidents that are the result of dangerous road conditions.

Anyone who has been harmed in an accident because of this factor needs to obtain the help of Las Vegas dangerous road conditions lawyers as soon as possible.  Below you’ll find a brief overview of what could constitute a dangerous road condition as well as a brief description of what must be done in order to hold those responsible for a crash that took place for this reason accountable.

Dangerous Road Conditions Defined

Governmental agencies have the duty to properly maintain the roads for which they are responsible, and they also have the duty to warn motorists of dangerous conditions that could not be repaired.  If these standards are not met, it could lead to a finding of liability either for the municipality or the state, depending on the type of road that’s found to be unreasonably dangerous.

Specifically, examples of situations where a road could be found to be unreasonably dangerous could include:

  • Inadequate warnings regarding impending road closures or weather-related conditions
  • Inadequate warnings of upcoming construction zones
  • An unreasonable reduction of the road’s shoulder
  • Excessive potholes
  • Excessive oil or other materials on the road that make it dangerously slippery

Of course, there are other situations where a road may be found to be unreasonably dangerous, but the items above represent common examples.

Recovering Compensation for Dangerous Road Conditions

When someone is injured in a Nevada car accident because of dangerous road conditions, that person does not proceed directly to court to file a Nevada personal injury lawsuit.  Instead, that person must first provide the governmental agency responsible for that area of the road with written notice of what occurred and what damages are sought within six months of the incident.  In addition, there are often statutory limits for recovery that must be kept in mind.

Based on these realities, someone in this position needs to obtain the help of experienced Las Vegas dangerous road conditions lawyers as soon as possible to make sure that his or her position is maximized.  Contact the Sam Harding Law Firm today to schedule a free initial consultation.
