Who is liable for accidents caused by road defects?

Car accidents in South Carolina occur for a number of reasons. While most that are reported seem to be caused by driver error or negligence, there are some that are caused by road defects. If a road defect is suspected in causing an accident, it is not uncommon for those involved in the wreck to wonder who can be held liable for the resulting damages.

As the outcomes of pedestrian-involved car accidents are often tragic, it is clear why South Carolina law enforcement officials would like to do more to prevent these incidents from happening, especially since recently released statistics show an increase in pedestrian fatalities.
