Defective Roadway Design in Orange County, CA
Filing an Injury Claim Against the City, County or State
Most car accidents are the result of negligent, reckless, or intoxicated
drivers. In those cases, it is relatively simple to determine liability
and pursue compensation from responsible parties. However, not all accidents
are caused by other drivers; often a car crash is the result of a road
or freeway that is not properly designed or maintained. In these scenarios,
it is essential to have a car accident attorney in Orange County in your
corner who is not afraid to stand up to government agencies.
At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we understand the frustration of suffering
injuries because of an accident caused by a defective road design. We
can use our experience to hold government agencies accountable for failing
to maintain the safety of the roadways they govern. Our dedication to
excellent customer service and efficiency in
personal injury claims has been recognized by our peers and clients alike, proven by our
lawyers' rating of AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®.
Seek the Just Compensation That You Deserve
In order for a roadway, highway or street to be safe for vehicle operators,
whether a car, truck, van, SUV or any commercial vehicle, the road must
be designed correctly and maintained properly. When an accident has occurred
due to a faulty design, a claim or lawsuit can be filed against the entity
responsible, whether that is a city, county or state agency. Our team
of legal professionals in Orange County can conduct thorough investigations
into the cause of your accident to determine which party is responsible.
Some of the factors that contribute to dangerous roadways include:
- Incorrect grading on curves
- Lack of adequate drainage and flooded roadways
- Signs that were obscured due to trees or other foliage
- Unmarked, dangerous dips
- Intersection with a history of accidents that has not had a stop light installed
- Bridges that are not maintained
- Uneven pavement or potholes
If you have been in an accident caused by a defect in the road's design,
we are ready to fight for you. We believe that you should not have to
shoulder the financial burden associated with injuries if they could have
been avoided with proper road maintenance. While every individual has
a duty to take reasonable measures to avoid endangering others, government
agencies have a greater responsibility, as we have a specific and real
trust in them.
The concerns regarding the safety of a street, road or highway, and whether
a failure by any government agency contributed to the accident is likely
to be heavily contested. Thus you will need legal counsel that is thorough,
meticulous, and aggressive in its approach. Often times, we will consult
with experts who can analyze the safety of a roadway in order to prove
that a government agency has contributed to the cause of your accident.
