Madison Uneven Pavement Attorneys
There are many problems with a roadway that can develop over time or due to flaws that poor construction and maintenance can create. As weather beats down on a road and accelerates deterioration already begun by the constant weight and motion of traffic, certain areas may become more worn down than others. With the same results, a road construction crew may not properly level out a road, leaving one side higher or lower than the other.

Uneven Pavement Accidents
State or local authorities attached to a particular public roadway are responsible for its construction and maintenance. Failing to properly maintain these roads can produce uneven pavement, which compromises safe operation of a car, truck, or motorcycle due to the differing level of the road surface. Uneven pavement can have the following effects:
- Tire or wheel damage
- Suspension irregularities
- Loss of control over one’s vehicle
- Lane change dangers
Uneven pavement accidents often occur because a person attempts to change lanes while the pavement is not at the same level. This can sharply alter the tire’s direction, often leading to a temporary loss of control. Especially at highway speeds, this short change in direction can lead to a collision with nearby motorists or roadside objects.
