We Win Cases
Whether we’re on a bike, a motorcycle or in a car, we have every right to expect that our roadways are safe. After all, our tax dollars pay for road construction and maintenance. Sadly, defective roadways contribute to thousands of accidents and injuries every year.
In such cases, the government entity involved may be held liable for the accident and the damages resulting from it. If you have been injured on a defective roadway, it is important to speak with an attorney right away. Why? In the vast majority of cases you must file a government claim within six months from the date of your injury. Failure to do so will prohibit you from ever collecting any compensation from the governmental entity responsible for your injury. Also, because governments benefit from immunities against lawsuits that other entities do not enjoy, it is critical that you have a qualified attorney evaluate your claim immediately.
The experienced personal injury attorneys at Jones Clifford, LLP are experts at dealing with claims against the government for defective roadways. You can count on us to utilize the most advanced strategies, tactics and technology available to bring about as favorable a resolution to your case as possible.
Some of the factors that contribute to making a defective roadway include:
- Poor maintenance
- Inadequate signage
- Signage that is difficult to see
- Inoperable traffic lights
- Improper signals
Of course, roadways themselves must be designed to meet certain standards and specifications. However, these standards are constantly updated and change from one year to the next. In addition, there is no requirement that a roadway be in “perfect” condition. Not every irregularity or flaw can give rise to a successful defective roadway claim. This is another reason why you need an attorney with experience in this complicated and ever-changing area of the law.
