If I was injured in a car accident caused by a road hazard, such as construction equipment, do I have a case?

This area of liability is an interesting aspect of premises liability. Governmental entities can not be held responsible for injuries in buildings or on roads they fail to build, expand, or modernize. However, when they make the decision to do so, they become responsible for the injuries sustained due to lack of maintenance or due care. It works in a way similar to a private individual owning or operating a building.
