Seven Factors That Can Lead to Dangerous Road Conditions

Do you know what caused your car accident?  You may have assumed it was the other driver’s actions, but in fact, it could have been the result of a dangerous road condition.  Dangerous intersections, design defects and inadequate warnings of potential hazards are among the many things that can lead to a serious California car accident.

Cars often cross over centerlines on highways and crash.  Vehicles have been known to fall down hills or other inclines in Southern California, resulting in catastrophic injuries.  While some of these incidents are caused by driver error or negligence, other times a dangerous road condition is to blame.

There are many potential road hazards that can lead to major auto accidents, including:
 
  • Poor visibility
  • Defective guardrails
  • Utility pole placement
  • Defective construction
  • Potholes
  • No median divider
  • Lack of warning signs to indicate dangerous curves

A car accident caused by a dangerous road can be catastrophic.  The occupants in the vehicle become at risk of sustaining serious injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, paralysis and death.  It can be very difficult for the driver to avoid this type of accident.
