Car accidents bring with them no shortage of stress and headache. Even in the best-case scenario, insurance claims and police reports alone can be tough to deal with. Serious injury and death add another layer of grief, pain, and financial burden. But what happens when it’s not just the negligence of a driver on the road that caused an accident, but the very design of the roadways you trust to carry you safely on your way?
Every roadway has several elements that must all be designed and maintained properly to work in harmony to keep drivers safe. Accidents can occur with increased frequency when those elements weren’t designed properly, including:
- Barriers and Guardrails
- Exit and Entry Freeway Ramps
- Lane and Edge Markings
- Road Signs
If you suspect that poor roadway design may have played a role in the conditions that led to your motor vehicle accident, you need a legal partner that can help you get what’s fair from the parties accountable while you focus on moving forward with your life.
