Speak With an Experienced Car Accident Lawyer in Austin, TX
Although it is common for time, weather, and adverse events such as car accidents to cause roadways to become damaged, repairing these damages is the responsibility of local municipal agencies. Unfortunately, as we at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., are all too aware, many roads in Austin remain unsafe to drivers due to these agencies failing to repair highway defects in a timely manner. As a result of this negligence, many innocent and unsuspecting motorists sustain serious injuries.
Accidents caused by highway defects can cause not only devastating physical and emotional trauma, but also burdensome financial costs. All of these repercussions can take a severe toll on a victim and his or her family. However, when a highway defect caused the accident, it may be possible to get financial compensation and justice from the party responsible for repairing the road.
