Detroit Highway Defect Lawyers
Any type of street defect can be hazardous to drivers, but highway defects are especially dangerous. Because vehicles travel at such high speeds on highways, even a minor defect on the road could have devastating consequences. A driver may lose control of the vehicle and crash if he or she encounters even a single defect on the road. The Department of Transportation or other municipality in charge of maintenance may be held liable if an unaddressed road defect causes a crash.

Types of Defects
Highway defects can sometimes go unfixed for weeks or even months, putting countless drivers at risk. Some representative types of defects that may lead to otherwise preventable motor vehicle accidents include:
- Uneven surfaces
- Improper signage
- Construction debris
- Missing guardrails
- Pooling water
- Shoulder drop-off
Any of these inconsistencies could cause an unsuspecting driver to crash and suffer serious injuries. If you have been injured in a highway defect accident, it is important to consult with a car accident lawyer as soon as possible. An experienced attorney will work with you to determine the cause of your accident and will fight to hold the responsible party accountable in court. You may be eligible to recover compensation for any of your accident-related costs, such as medical bills, lost income, vehicle damage, and pain and suffering.
