Road defects could lead to a serious crash

Getting hurt on the road isn't anyone's idea of a good day, but it's bound to happen to many each day. One of the problems you could run into is damaged or faulty roads. For instance, if you reported deepening potholes on the highway on the way to your workplace and never saw them repaired before your crash, it could be that the authorities in charge of taking care of the roads could be held accountable for your accident.

Imagine being involved in an accident but having nowhere to go. That's what it's like for millions of people in America who don't live close to hospitals.
