If you are injured due to a negligently maintained roadway, it is essential to remain at the scene and file a police report immediately. Take pictures of the roadway and the damage, and try to get the contact information for any witnesses. Negligence claims can be difficult to prove, and evidence is crucial for a successful claim.

Also note that claims against the government have strict time limitations, so you will need to file your notice documents as soon as possible. The automobile accident lawyers at Samster, Konkel & Safran, S.C. have extensive experience with personal injury cases against the government and can assist you in recovering damages.
