Car Accidents & Dangerous Road Conditions
Experienced Miami Car Accident Attorney Ready to Help You
Much of Florida is subject to temperamental weather and torrential rainfall,
oftentimes without much warning. There are also numerous wilderness preserves
and parks dotting the area, sometimes surrounding entire communities on
all sides. When the government fails to maintain their highways, these
weather conditions can create dangerous roadways that put drivers in real jeopardy.
Common hazards that can create dangerous road conditions include:
- Fallen trees, telephone poles, and other large debris
- Slick or flooded streets due to poor drainage
- Cracked surfaces and potholes
- Worn or otherwise unclear road markings
If you have been in a collision and you believe dangerous roadways are
to blame, get in

What to Do After a Dangerous Road Accident
Many of the worst road conditions can be found in remote areas that are
less frequently traveled. However, their isolation does not give the government
the excuse to neglect them when they are in need of maintenance and repair.
If you were in a car accident and no one else was around, there are still
a few things you can do that will help you secure fair financial compensation
for your damages.
Take pictures: Photograph the road, any obstacles you collided with, and the condition
of your car. If there is no one nearby to provide you with a testimony,
your pictures might be the only physical proof you have for your case,
so always be thorough.
Get examined: Be sure to see a physician as soon as you can and let them know about everything
that is bothering you. Do not ignore slight pains, as they could indicate
a greater problem beneath the surface. Keep records of any relevant paperwork.
Retain a lawyer: Figuring out who is responsible for your dangerous road accident might
not be straightforward. You may need to file a civil lawsuit against the
company contracted to maintain the road or you might need to go against
your insurance company for a better settlement. Whatever course you need
to take, arrive at your decision with a car accident attorney to avoid
