Defective Road Accidents

Oftentimes, an accident can happen even when there is no other vehicle involved. The actual road surface may be unsafe, due to a variety of causes.

We represent victims who have suffered injury when a defective road caused them to crash. We help our clients and their families by investigating the cause of your accident and securing the compensation you and your family deserve.


The Government or Municipality may be Liable to Compensate for your Damages

Depending on the circumstances the Cyprus Republic or a local Municipality owe duty to all users of the roads to maintain the roads in a proper condition free of foreseeable dangers for the users. In order to discharge this duty those responsible must ensure that our roads are properly inspected and maintained free of foreseeable dangers.

Things like uneven or broken paving, inadequate or missing signage, missing guardrails, inadequate lighting, malfunctioning traffic signals, overgrown vegetation and poor draining can all contribute to a serious crash on Cypriot roads.

Sadly, Cyprus is home to several quite dangerous roads, despite the attempts of the Government and the Municipalities to better the situation.


Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents Caused by Poor Road Design

Poorly designed streets often times are built with little accommodation for pedestrians, bicyclists, and those in wheelchairs and as such often times cause or contribute to accidents and injuries each year in Cyprus.

When a pedestrian or bicyclist is struck by a car or truck, the resulting injuries are often serious and even fatal. It’s the responsibility of engineers and city planners to construct streets and roads that can safely accommodate those on foot.

Rotsides & Co stands against the government agencies, construction companies and municipalities responsible for unsafe conditions that lead to serious crashes. Our experience in this area of the law enables us to thoroughly review your case and take immediate action to determine the cause of the accident and secure you compensation against those organisations.
