One of the most preventable contributing factors to crashes today are faulty roadways. Recently, a defective road here in Tennessee has not only led to numerous accidents, but is also causing local and state officials to face public scrutiny for failing to address the issue.
Just last week, a Tennessee motorcycle accident occurred at the intersection of Highway 109 and Academy Road in Lebanon, Tennessee. The fatal collision occurred just days after two local teenagers died in a crash along Highway 109 in Gallatin. Now, many local citizens have come forward saying the roads have heavy traffic on a daily basis and need updating. However, local officials are saying that the state is responsible for any maintenance that needs to be done.
The Wilson Post reports the Tennessee Department of Transportation has stated that plans to widen Highway 109 in the problematic areas are being developed, but no timeline has been created for the completion of the project.
This news leaves many wondering what to do after accidents caused by defective roadways. At Ponce Law, our team of Nashville personal injury lawyers would suggest discussing your legal rights with a qualified attorney as soon as possible.
