Governments Have A Duty To Maintain Safe Roads
When an auto accident occurs, it is natural to think that the collision happened because another driver was negligent. Sometimes, though, another factor — a dangerously maintained or designed road — is to blame.
Other Motorists Aren’t The Only Danger You Face On The Roadways In Cary
Governmental agencies like the North Carolina Department of Transportation have a legal duty to follow federal regulations and standards. Part of their responsibility is to ensure the roadways are safe.
When roads are dangerous and/or an agency fails to address a known danger, victims may be able to pursue compensation from the state or any contractors who worked on the roadway.
Since 1994, The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., has helped accident victims recover maximum compensation for damages stemming from another party’s negligent actions, even against the state.

Proving Fault In Unsafe Roadway Claims In North Carolina
At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., our Durham unsafe road conditions attorneys conduct thorough investigations to determine fault in car accidents involving unsafe road conditions. A challenge is to prove that unsafe road conditions actually caused the motor vehicle accident. If you were in a motor vehicle accident, we will seek to determine if:
- An unmarked or blind spot in the roadway contributed to the personal injury accident
- You lost control after a construction crew failed to clean up debris
- An unsafe road shoulder height caused or contributed to the car accident
- An excessively large pothole or crack in the road contributed to the car accident
From our Raleigh law office, personal injury attorneys work to obtain valuable evidence from the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) call records and other public information. We also meet with neighbors and other witnesses to understand if the DOT or municipal or county agency was aware of dangerous conditions and failed to respond. Our diligence in handling unsafe road condition claims has led to high-value recoveries in numerous cases.
