People need to understand that when roads are inherently dangerous and the conditions of certain roads play major roles in causing motor vehicle accidents, then it may be possible that a third party such as a government entity bears liability for the crash. Common kinds of road hazards that may lead to claims against governmental entities can include potholes, cracks in roads, faulty road signs, issues with guardrails, dangerous curves, poor lighting, or malfunctioning traffic lights.
