What are adverse road conditions?

Adverse road conditions is a major catalyst for crashes in Australia. With the county’s population growing at record pace wear and tear of our infrastructure are accelerated.

Adverse road conditions can create the perfect scenario for disaster. In many of these types of accidents, it’s beyond the driver’s reasonable control.

These types of accidents can occur due to many instances, such as infrastructure failure (dim or non-functioning street lights), cracks or slippage in the road, uncleaned spills, etc.

In this case, and you have been involved in a smash you may have grounds to make a motor vehicle accident claim.

Claims can be made against your local shire or council, or against your State or Territory Road Traffic Authority (VicRoads, Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, etc.)
