A Simple Formula: Broken Pavement Equals Broken Bones

Pavement that is cracked and broken is a property defect that requires immediate attention. An uneven sidewalk or parking lot creates dangerous surroundings. People could find themselves falling to the ground, suffering serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries.

Holding Property Owners Accountable For Their Negligence

Negligent property owners must be held accountable for their inattentiveness to a hazard. Shortcuts, low-quality materials, lack of maintenance and other cost-cutting techniques will end up costing property owners in the long run.

Pavement defects can take many forms and include:

  • Cracks in pavements — Oftentimes, low-quality materials create uneven or raised elevations in sidewalks and pavement. Time is not on the side of these property defects, as sections can erode.
  • Potholes — The separation of concrete and asphalt creates potholes, the bane to motor vehicles and their drivers. Growth of roots of nearby trees and other plants only add to the separation, increasing the potential for motor vehicle damage or a pedestrian hazard.

Fluctuations in temperatures can cause pavement to expand and contract, creating dangerous cracks and potholes. Cracks, uneven pavement and potholes are the responsibility of the commercial or residential property owner or government, if it owns or maintains the land.
