A pot hole. A broken stop sign. Something falling off the car in front of you and into the highway. In busy Los Angeles, there are a lot of opportunities for dangerous road car accidents…but who pays for them when the object or condition that should never have been there causes you injury or even death? While it may see like bad luck, it is most likely the city of Los Angeles (or whatever California city or County you were driving in) that should be held responsible for the fix.


What exactly is a Los Angeles dangerous road condition? Here’s a few examples:

  • A fallen coral tree branch on San Vincente that causes you to run over it and hit the tree in the center divide causing injuries and damage to your car
  • A major pot hole on the 405 freeway that results in a multi-car collision
  • A raised sidewalk in Santa Monica that causes you to trip and break some bones
  • A failure to warn of an open road that forces you into a motorcycle accident on PCH resulting in time in the hospital and missed work.

From Ventura to Riverside, the road conditions in Southern California seem to be getting worse as temporary and semi-permanent dangers are left unattended for far too long. Even if the city does not know that a dangerous road condition exists, it can still be held legally and financially responsible for your injuries. Los Angeles (as well as Orange County, Riverside, San Fernando Valley and Ventura County) dangerous road conditions include:

  • Potholes
  • Broken or covered signs
  • Broken stoplights and other traffic signals
  • Construction
  • Weather-related traffic and flooding control issues

While knowledge of the dangerous condition might help increase your recovery, even a same-day dangerous road condition can make for a winning Los Angeles dangerous road condition lawsuit. The city is responsible for keeping the conditions of the road safe at all times. Ultimately, these suits hinge on showing that a dangerous road condition caused or contributed to your injuries that have cost you money, among other things. Dangerous road conditions are also a major cause of pedestrian injuries and e-scooter personal injury accidents.


Anytime you file a personal injury lawsuit against the city (the other very common one is Los Angeles slip and fall accidents), it is a tighter timeframe for filing and a lot more paperwork. The good news is that when you hire Walch Law as your Los Angeles dangerous road conditions car accident lawyer, we can take care of everything but all you have to do is get in touch with us. In many of these cases, you are not just filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the city but also any other car/driver that may have been involved in causing you injuries and damage to your car.
