Sometimes car accidents are not the fault of humans.  Investigations and proceedings after such crashes can be incredibly upsetting, particularly when there’s nobody to blame, except the road designer.  To add to the frustration, insurance companies can often stall or not give the appropriate claim for such an incident.

Our firm can help by providing a full investigation of such negligence to determine liability. In order to receive compensation for your claim, you must prove that the given local, state or federal agency is liable.  This means proving that the local, state or federal agency did not respond in an appropriate time frame to repair the issue or at least provide adequate warning.

Hazardous Roadway Issues

Below are some common issues relating to poor road design and hazardous conditions that result in motor vehicle crashes every year.
