Driving can be dangerous, filled with the hazards of other drivers and obstacles in the road. One common cause of car wrecks that is not often addresses is unsafe roads. Roads that have not been properly maintained or designed can be a real hazard for unsuspecting drivers. The quality of Georgia roads varies greatly; while many roads are safe and well maintained, others are aging and filled with potholes and other problems.
If you are seriously injured in a car wreck only involving your car, you may think that this is your fault and a result of your own negligence. But if it is a site where others have experienced similar accidents, it could be an unsafe road to blame. Another example would be a car wreck that was caused when your vehicle slipped on ice or wet pavement and was made much worse due to the lack of guard rails above a drop-off. Any road with an unnecessarily dangerous construction area, lack of proper signage, or a poor design might be considered an unsafe road.
