Involved in a single-car accident? Find out if road defects were to blame?
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. If you have been injured on any of Louisiana’s
roads, including I-10, I-12, Greenwell Springs Road or Highway 308, contact
