Champaign Objects on the Highway Lawyers
Highways can be incredibly dangerous. With vehicles moving at fast speeds, it becomes difficult for drivers to react quickly to the sudden or unexpected, and accidents can easily occur. This happens with unfortunate frequency when drivers encounter highway debris. Whether relatively small or covering entire lanes, objects on the road that do not belong there are a very real and immediate threat to drivers.
Municipal, state, and federal agencies are responsible for maintaining highways, ensuring that roads are kept clear of obstructions and safe for travel. When they fail at this duty, serious accidents can result. If you or someone you love has been a victim of such negligence, contact the Champaign objects on the highway attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C.. Let us provide you with the knowledgeable, attentive legal guidance you deserve.
The Consequences of Highway Debris
A wide variety of objects can contribute to hazardous highway driving conditions. Natural debris (tree branches, animal remains, etc.), deserted car parts, and improperly secured cargo from 18-wheelers are all examples of highway litter that has the potential to cause accidents or other damage, such as:
- Tire / undercarriage damage as vehicles run over foreign objects
- Windshield / body damage from the impact of debris
- Cars colliding as drivers swerve to avoid refuse
- Drivers veering off the road in an attempt to avoid objects in the roadway
Innocent drivers should not have to shoulder the costs of injuries and property damage associated with the negligence of others. If you have been involved in an accident due to the failure of certain agencies to provide adequate highway maintenance, call (217) 328-2828.
