Default Accident on icy road (city responsibility?)

Wilmette, IL (Cook County)

The entrance ramp to the highway was shut off due to dangerous icy condition so I followed the detour which led to another road with extremely icy condition. My car spun which ended up on the opposite lane and was struck by an oncoming vehicle. Fortunately, no one was hurt but I am clearly at fault with both cars severely damaged. Is the city or county in any way responsible since I followed the detour signs and ended up being on dangerous road?

I wish to inform you that you can make city liable for the loss which you have suffered because of incorrect detour. In this regard you may argue that as the sign board showed incorrect information therefore you were mislead by incorrect detour and hence you must be compensated for your loss. Generally there is immunity to municipal body under Illinois Tort Immunity Act but in this regard when there are certain exceptions in which public body can be held liable. In this regard you can held liable municipal under exception under Article III dealing with Immunity From Liability For Injury Occurring In The Use Of Public Property.

Not sure if this info helps but soon after the accident, they closed off the road for traffic because they realized it was too dangerous. FYI, this accident happened on a bridge over a highway.

Hi,
Well driving on icy road is always dangerous as friction between tires and wheels reduced to great extent. Which leads to dangerous accidents. Well can't say city is responsible on the basis of information furnished many things depend on the county or state law in which you live, if there is any provision in relate to this. Then only we can say something.

Hi
No friend the city or county will not be responsible for this. I think it is your fault because the highway was shut off to save you from accident and you still followed the icy way.

Thanks
