Claiming for accidents caused by adverse road conditions

Back to Motor Vehicle Claims Advice

Adverse road conditions is a major catalyst for car crashes in Australia. With the counties population growing at record pace wear and tear of our infrastructure are accelerated.

Adverse road conditions can create the perfect scenario for car accidents. In many of these types of car accidents, it’s beyond the driver’s reasonable control.

Road accidents can occur due to many instances, such as infrastructure failure (dim or non-functioning street lights), cracks or slippage in the road, uncleaned spills, etc.

In this case, and you have been involved in a car accident you may have grounds to make a motor vehicle accident claim.

Claims can be made against your local shire or council, or against your State or Territory Road Traffic Authority (VicRoads, Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, etc.)

If you believe that adverse road conditions played a part in your car accident, we might be able to help. We have experienced lawyers who specialise in car accident compensation so there are very few things they haven’t come across before.
