Unsafe Design, Poor Maintenance, and Inadequate Inspection Lead to Dangerous Roadways
Some of the most severe auto accidents are not always caused by driver negligence. Many times it is the roadway itself that creates increased danger leading to catastrophe. Dangerous roadways result from a number of factors, including unsafe design, faulty or nonexistent inspections and inadequate maintenance. Using specialized experts in the field, our attorneys at Bohn & Fletcher have successfully recovered millions of dollars for clients injured because of dangerous road conditions. The following are examples of how dangerous road conditions occur:
- Design flaws: Roads constructed with poor visibility, unsafe turns, absence of a center divide or guard rails
- Inspection Failure: Roads that are not periodically inspected and maintained can deteriorate and cause dangerous conditions that could have been discovered by reasonable inspection
- Improper Maintenance: When repairs are made to roads, failure to use the appropriate materials or failing to sufficiently repair known defects can result in dangerous conditions
If you are a driver, passenger or pedestrian injured as a result of a dangerous roadway accident, you may be entitled to compensation. In most personal injury cases you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. However, if the negligent party was a government entity, as is often the case in accidents caused by dangerous roadways, California only gives you six months to file a claim.
