When a motorist loses control of their vehicle because of a poorly designed or maintained street or highway, the injured person may be able to seek compensation from the company or agency responsible for the design and upkeep of the road or street on which the accident occurred.
If you were injured in a crash due to a lack of one or more of these factors, contact an accident attorney from our firm right away to discuss your options and to find out if you may be able to file a personal injury claim.
The design of a road requires nothing short of acute attention to detail and an intricate eye for design. Unfortunately, the many nuances that must be considered during the design phase of a road or highway are often overlooked in part or in full, thus creating defective flaws that leave drivers who travel along these roads at a significantly greater risk of being involved in an accident.
After a car collision of any degree, a critical component of the investigations that will be conducted should include an extensive look into the design of the road upon which the accident occurred. If defects are found in the road's design, or lapses are discovered in the road's maintenance, then legal action should be taken immediately.
At the Mesa Law Firm, our investigation into a car accident case will include assessment of the following:
Involvement of even one of the aforementioned components can lead to a serious accident and even more serious injuries. Accordingly, liability for accidents that result from road defects and design flaws rests on the designers and maintenance crew of such roads. In some cases, the fault can even lie with a municipal or state government.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident of any nature, we urge you to speak with a personal injury lawyer from our firm. Whether or not you were aware of it at the time, a defective design flaw in the road's structure could be to blame for the accident that resulted. We can conduct the proper investigations into your case in order to determine if hazardous circumstances of this nature were at play at the time that your accident occurred.
