Dangerous Roads and Highways in Southern California
Southern California has some of the most utilized roads in the country. Whether you are driving an automobile, truck, or motorcycle, you have the right to expect that the public roads you traverse are safe and free of dangerous impediments. In some places, however, they are not. When the road is not properly designed, marked, or maintained, devastating accidents can occur. Dangerous roads can occur in many areas and for many reasons including:
- Defects in the design of the road;
- Hazards due to poor road maintenance;
- Failure to mark hazards such as fallen rocks, icy bridges, etc.;
- Missing or obstructed signs (i.e. stop signs);
- Confusing lane changes or closures in construction zones; and
- Failure to consider weather conditions in road design.
Many of our tax dollars go to constructing and maintaining public roads and freeways, and the government has a duty to ensure those roads are safe to drive on. When that does not happen and you are injured or someone you loved is killed as a result, you can file a claim against the government. Our attorneys are skilled in handling claims against the government. As practiced negotiators and litigators, we effectively advocate for our clients rights both in and out of court.
