A road defect case revolves around issues related to the condition of the road. For example, if road repairs were made and the highway department or contractor did not rebuild the shoulder of the road to the proper height, then a vehicle may fall off the side of the road, causing the driver to lose control and crash. It is a scary scenario that should be avoided by the people responsible for the roads.
Other examples of road defects that can lead to an accident are:
- The road was built in a way that prevents it from draining properly
- Defective or dangerous guardrails
- Inadequate road markings
- Lack of signage
