How Potholes and Raised Concrete Can Lead to Serious Injuries

Whenever we drive on an uneven and pothole-filled road, many of us experience discomfort and annoyance. Walking on broken sidewalks and pavement can also be difficult, forcing us to actively focus on our surroundings. These potholes and uneven roads can lead to severe injuries, but you should know that someone else may be liable for your injuries. You could receive compensation for medical bills, property damage, and other losses.

You don’t need to face complex legal matters alone. A premises liability lawyer can provide helpful services and support in your time of need. The attorneys from Mintz Law Firm have extensive experience handling cases involving severe injuries and monetary loss. Our talented team has the tools, resources, and recommendations you need to navigate the legal system confidently.

Can Potholes and Uneven Roads Lead to Injuries?

Inconsistency on the roads and sidewalks can easily lead to injuries, including severe bodily harm that may even require medical attention. While our vehicles are made to have some durability and absorb shock, serious damage to the roads can result in injuries despite these safety efforts, especially if the road conditions lead to a car accident. Proper property maintenance can significantly help prevent bodily harm.

If you receive injuries due to uneven roads, either while walking or driving, we recommend you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Receiving care from a medical professional, whether from emergency services or your general care provider, can speed up the healing process, give you access to helpful treatment plans, and provide you with referrals. For assistance managing the healing and legal process, partnering with a lawyer can help you significantly.

Who is Liable for Injuries Due to Poor Road Maintenance?

You may be eligible to receive compensation depending on the circumstances and facts surrounding your injuries. To obtain payment for your losses, you must determine who is liable for your injuries and hold them accountable for their irresponsibility. The following parties could be responsible for your damages:

  • Employer or employee of the premises
  • Owner or renter of the property
  • Another guest on the premises
  • City or state government
  • Drivers or other passengers
  • Parts, machinery, or vehicle manufacturers
  • Company drivers or employers

Other parties may also be liable for your losses, and there may be cases where more than one individual needs to be held accountable. For assistance managing your case, reach out to our team at Mintz Law Firm. We can help you narrow the list of potentially liable parties, collect and analyze evidence on your case, and hold responsible individuals accountable.

Why Should I Work With a Lawyer?

A premises liability lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve after suffering damages due to potholes or raised concrete. Your attorney can also speak on your behalf, complete and file paperwork, level the playing field against other parties and representatives, and much more.

We recommend you refrain from representing yourself during legal matters, as you could accidentally reduce the compensation you qualify to receive. Instead, assistance from a lawyer can help ensure your case is represented fairly and favorably, maintain the value of your case, and reduce stress from the legal process. Also, it’s best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to improve your odds of legal success. This will help your representation in several ways and gives them enough time to build arguments for your case.
