Injury Claims Involving Dangerous or Defective Roads
Local, state, and federal entitles are responsible for designing, building, and maintaining safe roadways for the public. This includes not only the road itself but also its signage, which must comply with governmental standards.
When an accident occurs due to dangerous or defective condition on the road, a legal claim may be filed against the governmental agency responsible for the condition. To do this requires compliance with strict deadlines. Failure to meet these notice deadlines will make a claim inadmissible, which is why it is vital to contact our firm as soon as possible in the wake of such an accident.
Roads can be defective or dangerous in many ways, based on how they were designed, built, or maintained.
These conditions can include:
- Overgrowth of trees or vegetation concealing signs and signals
- Lack of or defective guardrails
- Missing signs or signals
- Poor or no lighting
- Blind curves
- Lack of or dangerous shoulders
- Poorly maintained roads in severe weather conditions
Even when another driver is at fault, such conditions can be a contributing factor to an accident and injuries, making the governmental agency a responsible party to the claim. In such cases, we urge you to contact The Law Offices of Justin L. Mason, LLC for aggressive and effective legal representation.
