Highway Defects

There are many types of car accidents that occur because of careless behavior or driver negligence, however, some collisions are caused or worsened by unsafe roadways. When governments and municipal agencies fail to adequately monitor and maintain the condition of roads and highways, the safety of the drivers who use them may be compromised. Highway defects can be a serious threat to motorists and their passengers when overlooked by the parties responsible for maintaining the public roadways.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a car accident because of municipal negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your expenses and suffering. Contact the Charleston highway defects attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.


Some highway defects can be attributed to negligence during initial road construction and others may be linked with a lack of sufficient maintenance. Moreover, there are some which might be produced by climate conditions. Common roadway hazards include:

  • Shoulder Drop Off
  • Water Pooling
  • Potholes
  • Uneven Pavement
  • Lack of Signs
  • Lack of Guardrails
  • Objects on the Roadway

A civil lawsuit against the responsible party or parties might help you to gain financial compensation for medical bills, vehicle repair or replacement costs, and other relevant damages. Do not delay in seeking to protect your rights. Speak with a Charleston highway defects attorney today.
