You may have a claim against the state or other government entity responsible for the road. The problem you may run into is if your jurisdiction (you did not say what state you are in) has a Notice of Claim statute. In many states, in order to bring a claim against a government entity you need to first file a Notice of Claim with that government entity, in some cases within six months of the accident. You may have missed that window. You should make an appointment as soon as possible with a personal injury attorney in your area. Most will not charge for an initial consultation, and if they take your case, it will be on a contingency fee basis, so there will be no cost to you until your claim settles. You should gather your medical records associated with the accident and get an appointment as soon as possible with a PI attorney to find out if your claim is still viable.
Thank you. Would you know the window in Florida?
