Dangerous highway conditions can cause an accident

There are many highways that run through the state of West Virginia. As a driver, you know that sharing the road with other cars and trucks is a part of life.

What you may not realize, however, is that there are times when dangerous road conditions can cause an accident. This can include but is not limited to the following:

-- Failure on behalf of the state to correct a problem after being made aware of the defect.

-- Poor maintenance, such as neglecting to fix potholes or install guardrails where necessary.

-- Insufficient use of salt during the winter months.

-- Inadequate signage associated with roadway construction or a dangerous condition.

-- Roadways that are slippery as the result of mudslides or water.

All of these conditions can come into play on the roadways throughout the state. As a driver, you may not be able to account for all of these risks. For example, if you're traveling at 70 miles per hour, it's hard to avoid a pothole or bump in the road that could cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

At our law firm, we know that dangerous highway conditions exist. Over the years, we have consulted with many people who have been injured in a highway accident.

If you find yourself in this position, you should first receive medical attention for any injuries suffered in the accident. From there, learn more about what caused your crash. You may find that the state or another government entity acted in a negligent manner, thus putting you in position to receive compensation.
