Champaign Uneven Pavement Lawyers
Poor road construction standards and long-term road neglect can create dangerous road conditions. If the road is not evenly leveled, motorists may be left driving on uneven surfaces. In some cases, this may be the result of unfinished construction work that has only been completed one lane. The unevenness of the pavement can interfere with a driver’s ability to retain control over their vehicle.
To discuss your legal options if you have been injured in an accident caused by a municipality or construction crew’s negligence, contact the Champaign uneven pavement attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. today.
Uneven Pavement Dangers
When a road crew does not properly level a road, but allows drivers to still use that highway, there may be dangerous consequences for these motorists. Changing lanes on uneven pavement can affect the tire’s direction, causing a sharp but momentary loss of control. If this loss of control leads to a collision with another vehicle or an off-road object, the resulting injuries may be very serious.
The following injuries may occur because of uneven pavement collisions:
- Brain damage
- Neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Severe bleeding
- Permanent scarring
A person who sustains these injuries can pay a substantial amount of money for medical treatment and may lose out on job opportunities and wages.
