Although many car accidents occur every year because of one or multiple driver errors, there are some that are caused for reasons that are beyond any driver’s control. One such example is a highway defect like a shoulder drop-off, in which a road shoulder both deteriorates to a lower elevation than that of the road itself and causes vehicles to become unbalanced and unstable.
