Roads, as one of the most used public utilities, have a significant portion of tax dollars dedicated to both their creation and maintenance. Without usable roads, many people’s daily activities would be inaccessible. Because of this, municipal agencies have a responsibility to maintain roads and keep them safe for public use. The failure of a municipal agency to repair roadway defects puts everyone in danger.
If a municipal agency has failed to uphold its responsibility to keep roads safe and you or a loved one has been injured or otherwise harmed because of it, you should seek to hold them responsible for their negligent behavior.
