An Overview of Hazardous Roadway Accidents

Public safety researchers estimate that 95 percent of motor vehicle collisions happen because of driver error. Of course, with millions of crashes each year, this still leaves a significant gap. Many of the other accidents are caused by roadway safety hazards. While these are a clear minority of all car accidents, road hazards are still responsible for thousands of collisions in New Mexico each year. In other cases, road hazards make a crash far worse than it would have otherwise been. Hazardous roadway conditions come in a wide range of different forms. Some notable examples include: 

  • Roadway Defects: Potholes, cracks in the pavement, uneven lanes, etc. 
  • Defective Design: Very sharp turns, lack of guardrails, confusing merges, etc. 
  • Improper Signage: Lack of signs, misleading or ambiguous signs, etc. 
  • Construction Issues: Equipment or debris left in the roadway, lack of safety markings, etc. 

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Hazardous Roadway Collision

Every hazardous roadway accident requires a comprehensive investigation. To start, these accidents may still be the fault of another driver. Some roadway hazard collisions, such as an accident made worse by a defective guardrail, may have initially been triggered by a negligent motorist. The driver can still be held liable for their share of the damages. 

Other parties can be held liable for roadway hazard accidents as well. For example, the federal, state, or local government agency responsible for road maintenance may be liable. Beyond that, private construction companies and maintenance contracted for road-related work may also be held liable for a crash.
