Let us help you recover compensation for your injuries
While there are several reasons that cars collide while on the road, many accidents occur due to the roadway itself. And when a high number of vehicle accidents occur at the same location, this is typically a surefire sign that the roadway is dangerous. If you’ve been injured in a dangerous roadway accident, allow the experienced attorneys at GED Lawyers, LLP, to take on your case. At GED Lawyers, LLP, our accident attorneys fight zealously to ensure you are properly compensated for your injuries.
What causes roadways to be dangerous?
There are a number of ways in which roadways can be dangerous. Typical issues include:
- Faded lane lines
- Old reflectors
- Lack of traffic lights, signals, and signs
- Failure to account for common weather conditions
- Failure to account for poor road visibility
- Lack of proper drainage
- Insufficient banking at curves
- Excessive banking at curves
- Improperly placed ramps
- Poorly designed ramps
- Low bridges without warnings
- Incorrect bridge height warnings
- Lack of an adequate shoulder on the side of a road
- Improperly placed guard rails
- Improperly placed median barriers
- Improperly placed speed bumps
- Improperly placed curbs
There are a number of laws that are intended to prevent the above issues. However, these laws are not always followed. If you’ve been injured in a dangerous roadway accident, we will examine federal, state, and local laws and regulations to determine whether your municipality’s roadways are compliant with all legal requirements, as noncompliance can greatly increase your odds of financial recovery.
Pedestrians and bicyclists also at risk due to dangerous roadways
Dangerous roadways that fail to provide adequate accommodations for pedestrians, bicyclists, people in wheelchairs, and others often lead to accidents. And when an individual not in a vehicle is struck by a car or truck, the results are often devastating. Those who survive such accidents often must deal with lifelong injuries and heavy financial burdens. If you’ve been harmed while travelling on a dangerous roadway, whether on foot or by vehicle, allow us to fight for your compensation.
