Road Hazard Accidents in Nashville, TN
Did a Dangerous Road Defect Cause Your Accident?
Often, car accidents are not caused by the drivers themselves, but by the road that they are driving on. Flaws in the design or construction of a road—such as errors in gradient, placement of guard rails, and construction of road shoulders— can lead to accidents. Unfortunately, errors such as these are all too common road defects.
If you or someone you love was injured in a car wreck that was caused by a dangerous road, it is important to know that there are steps that you can take to protect yourself and those you love. At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, our Nashville car accident attorneys have more than a century of collective experience.

At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we know the claims and lawsuits surrounding these types of cases can be complex. You will need a personal injury attorney who can effectively prove the roadway’s condition was what caused your accident. More than that though, it is important to recognize that these claims are made against the government itself—and not individuals or companies. To be successful in such a claim, your lawyer will need to prove that the government entity in charge of maintaining the road was negligent in their upkeep.
Questions that will need to be asked include the following:
- Did the government know about problems with the road?
- Did the government fail to fix those known issues?
- Was there enough time for the fixes to be made?
- Did that stretch of road have a history of causing accidents?
Our firm can help you navigate the intricacies of these claims to ensure that your rights are fully protected. If you would like to learn more, contact our firm to schedule a consultation.
