Road Authorities (City, Region or Province) are required to maintain roads and highways so they are suitable for motor vehicles to traverse and in a state of repair. Examples of possible state of disrepair include:

  • Negligent road maintenance
  • Accumulation of Snow
  • Formation of Ice
  • Two-graded shoulder drop offs
  • Improperly demarcated road lines
  • Absence of proper signals and road signs
  • Excessive debris
  • Obstructions to visibility – such as overgrowth of shrubs

Such hazards could amount to negligence on the part of the Road Authority for failing to ensure safe roadways. At Virk Personal Injury Law, we have an excellent understanding of the regulations such as the Minimum Maintenance Standards that are to be followed to ensure safe roadways. To build the strongest case, we will further reach out to the appropriate experts such as accident reconstructionist with a speciality in road design and health care professionals in order to gather all the necessary evidence to obtain maximum compensation for your damages.


Even if the accident did not involve another vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation. If you lost control of your vehicle due to a dangerous roadway, you can still recover no-fault accident benefits and compensation through your own insurance policy to help cover the costs of incurred expenses as a result of the accident.
