Poorly Maintained Roads
If somebody is injured in a motorcycle accident as a result of uneven roads or conditions that are in disrepair on a roadway, those are tricky accidents when you look to a municipality to step in and take some fault. It really has to be something that should have been repaired, that they knew about and that they had notice of prior to the accident.
A lot of towns, and villages and cities have a prior written notice statute. You have to look to the City Clerk’s office and see if they had written notice of this. If they simply failed to repair it and it was a contributing factor in causing the accident, then you have a potential claim against that municipality.
