Roadway defects and highway defects in North Carolina can cause very serious injuries. Uneven pavement during resurfacing operations is one type of roadway defect that has resulted in numerous serious crashes in North Carolina. Other types of roadway defects that have resulted in serious crashes include shoulder drop offs, excessively sharp curves, potholes, improper road design causing pooling of water due to lack of drainage, excessive gravel or debris on roadways.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has very specific rules and regulations that must be followed to ensure proper roadway construction and maintenance. However, not every contractor employed by the NCDOT follows the rules and serious accidents are sometimes the result. Our firm is currently litigating a very significant roadway defect case arising from an improper resurfacing project that resulted in serious injuries and one death.
