Our Investigation Will Identify The At-Fault Party In Your Palm Bay Case
When we build your compensation case, we start by identifying the at-fault party and uncovering evidence of their negligence. That means proving the at-fault party’s:
- Duty of care – their responsibility to provide you with reasonable care
- Breach of duty – failure to properly maintain roads or clear away debris
- Causation – proof the accident would not have happened without the negligent action
- Damages – the accident led to costly financial expenses and losses
We Can Determine The Cause Of Your Collision
Road surfaces considered dangerous can range from slick to slippery, flooded to rutted, and more. Some commonly reported causes of collisions affected by road hazards or dangerous road conditions can include:
- Unrepaired potholes
- Improperly designed roads
- Standing or swirling water

The Filing Deadline Can Be Complicated In Your Dangerous Road Condition Case
Like all states, Florida imposes a filing deadline on your personal injury case.

If your case involves an accident fatality, you generally have two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d).
The statute of limitations can be complex because various factors can cause it to fluctuate. In cases like yours that involve a government agency or municipality. Their involvement could mean you have additional filing and notification deadlines.
