Bradenton Man Injured After Motorcycle Strikes Hidden Drain Pipe

A motorcyclist from Bradenton sustained some serious injuries in an accident on the afternoon of Saturday, August 24 in Manatee County.

According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, the 21-year-old motorcyclist was riding his Suzuki motorcycle on a dirt road just west of 46th St. Ct. E. at approximately 4 p.m. that afternoon. While traveling on the dirt road, he hit a drain pipe that was concealed by tall grass, and was thrown off his bike. He was transported to Blake Medical Center to be treated for significant injuries.

Injuries caused by defective roadways

There are some circumstances in which people who are injured in accidents, including single-vehicle accidents, can file a claim against a government entity or property owner if they are able to prove defects or hazards in the roadway caused an accident. For example, cities are generally in charge of maintaining city streets, and states are generally in charge of maintaining highways. Roadways that are clearly defective or not properly maintained are a danger to everyone on the road, and a failure of these government entities to properly maintain those roads could result in them being held liable for accidents that occur on them.

This is true for any kind of road — there are certain safety standards that exist and to which the entity in charge of maintaining those roads must adhere.
