Accidents Caused by Road Hazards

Proper upkeep of streets, roads and highways falls to one or more of the following government bodies:

  • A municipality, such as San Marcos, Pflugerville or Austin
  • A county, such as Travis County or Williamson County
  • The state of Texas
  • The federal government, in the case of interstate highways

When Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP, represents injured accident victims after a car wreck or a trucking accident, we dig deep into all aspects of the case in pursuit of the true causes. Traffic violations and defective automotive parts are common causes of car accidents leading to catastrophic injuries or fatalities. In some cases, however, we discover that the number one cause of a crash was some type of road hazard such as the following:

  • Potholes
  • Road construction barriers
  • Unkempt trees and bushes along the roadways
  • Road construction machinery, equipment and vehicles
  • Malfunctioning traffic signals

These details typically come to light during investigation after an accident. In most car accident cases, we hire expert accident reconstructionists to discover and document the presence of road hazards at the time of a crash.

If you were seriously injured on a city street, county road, state highway or interstate highway in central Texas, Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP, wants to help, beginning with a free initial consultation.
