Depending upon where the accident occurred, it is likely that a local municipality or construction company may be held financially liable for any resulting damages. As such, if the accident occurred on a public road, the local municipality may likely be held responsible; whereas, if the accident occurred in a construction zone, it may be the construction company’s responsibility to maintain the safety of the road. However, without knowing the specific details of an accident, it is exceedingly difficult to determine who exactly may be held financially liable for a car accident. For instance, if the road defect was on a privately maintained roadway, it may be the property owners responsibility to maintain the safety of his or her property.
