Defects on a road can be a serious hazard for any driver. Uneven pavement, a type of damage that leaves the road without an even surface for all four wheels to drive on, can cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle, potentially leaving that driver in a position to be critically injured in a single- or multiple-vehicle accident. While uneven pavement often occurs due to the negligence of government authorities in regards to road upkeep, some pavement problems can be due to poor construction protocol. Oftentimes, road work on multiple lane streets will be performed one lane at a time, leaving the other lane on a different level until workers reconcile the height differences.
If uneven pavement caused you to lose control of your vehicle or undergo a similar dangerous traffic situation in which you were injured, you may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim.
