Dangerous & Defective Roads
Dangerous Highways, Poor Roadway Design and Maintenance
Other factors can contribute to motor vehicle accidents as well. These factors include:
- Improper roadway design, maintenance, construction, signage and lighting
- Highway defects such as poorly placed trees and utility poles
- Poorly maintained roads
- Malfunctioning traffic control signals
In cases such as this, government entities may be potential defendants. Special rules apply to claims and lawsuits brought against governmental bodies, however, and proper legal advice is critical to preserving and winning such claims.
