The government has a duty to ensure that dangerous roads do not put Californian’s lives in danger. It must also act reasonably to repair dangerous roads. Proving that dangerous roads caused an accident requires an attorney to show that the government knew of the danger yet failed to correct it. This is a complex process requiring extensive investigation and research.
Our lawyers will review the original road designs, topographical maps, photos, traffic studies, and road maintenance records. We will investigate the cause of your accident and determine whether steps taken by the government could have prevented it. We will involve engineers, accident reconstructionists, and road design experts to build the strongest possible case for you.
While our primary goal is to obtain maximum compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, we also have a secondary goal: to force changes in dangerous road conditions that could save lives.
Types of Dangerous Roads That Lead to Accidents
The condition of a road may lead to an accident because it was designed or constructed improperly, is poorly maintained, or because weather conditions have created hazards.
Examples of common road dangers include:
- Blemishes in the road like potholes or wheel ruts
- Fallen debris, such as a downed tree or power lines
- Ice patches
- Steep shoulder drop-offs
- Poorly designed intersections
- Poorly painted road lines
- Missing or misleading road signs
- Work zones, especially if not carefully marked
