Types of Municipal Negligence
Because local and state municipalities are responsible for a great number of projects, including roadway maintenance, errors are more common than you might think. Some of the most common kinds of roadway-specific municipal negligence include:
- Failure to maintain even pavement
- Failure to repair potholes
- Failure to maintain road paint
- Failure to post/replace warning signs
These types of municipal negligence only scratch the surface of possibilities, but they are some of the most common forms. As minor as it seems, such negligence can be the cause of very dangerous car accidents that lead to serious injury or even death.
