Indianapolis Obstructed Roadway Lawyers
Highways are intrinsically dangerous places due to the number of cars traveling at a given time, as well as the speed at which these cars are driving. In many cases, even a driver who is fully alert and responsible will be put in danger because they do not have adequate time to respond to a situation on the road.
An example of this can be found in foreign objects or debris that is not removed from roadways in a timely manner. Objects that may be left on the highway, posing a significant threat to drivers, may include:
- Cars and car parts from accidents that have not been cleared
- Fallen signs
- Tools and equipment from highway construction
- Dead animals
- Weather debris (e.g. tree branches)
The highway accident attorneys at Hankey Marks & Crider are here to represent you if you have been in an accident because of any of these (or other) objects negligently left on the highway.
