Who is responsible if a highway defect caused an accident?

Although the actual circumstances of the accident will determine which party is liable in the accident, wrecks that result directly from highway defects may be the responsibility of the municipality assigned to maintain that highway. They are accountable for building safe roads and making sure that are always in safe working order. Accountability will be determined by a host of factors, such as the extent of the defect and the drivers’ actions.
