may have grounds to seek restitution from their municipality.

that should have been addressed by your city or town, then

Examples of Unsafe Road Conditions
Many cities and towns, Philadelphia included, have made efforts to create
safe conditions for bicycle traffic and incorporate cyclists into the
regular flow of commuters. However, just like other streets, roadways,
and public spaces, these conditions need to be properly maintained to
keep people safe.
Unsafe road conditions that can hurt bicyclists include:
- Cracked or uneven pavement
- Unfinished or hazardous road shoulders
- Trees, utility poles, medians, or signage too close to the road
- Confusing signage or broken traffic lights
- Poor street drainage
- Improperly plowed or cleared bike lanes (during snow)
- Construction site hazards
If you believe that any one of these factors contributed to your bicycle
crash, then you may have a claim against your municipality. Towns and
cities usually hire contractors to maintain our infrastructure and when
these parties fail to do so, they can be held accountable for citizens
who have been wronged or harmed as a result of their negligence. Our firm
is ready to stand with you, prove that negligence, and aggressively pursue
the compensation you deserve.
