Single-Car Accidents And Roadway Defects

Though we often take it for granted, making the trip between work and home safely is no small accomplishment. Driving is dangerous enough with sleep-deprived, distracted or otherwise impaired motorists on the road, but hazardous highways and road defects substantially increase your odds of being involved in a devastating accident.

A number of unsafe driving conditions may lead to single-car accidents:

  • Dangerous Intersections
  • Poorly Designed and Maintained Roads
  • Worn or Damaged Roadway Markings

How road defects can contribute to a single-vehicle crash

Say the vehicle next to you swerves into your lane, forcing you onto the shoulder. A poorly maintained shoulder could prevent you from correcting back onto the highway. You wind up in a single-vehicle accident with mounting repair costs, medical expenses and insurance rates, while the distracted driver gets off scot-free.
