Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

Dangerous Road Conditions

Not all car accident cases are the same. Sometimes, uncommon circumstances are involved that make proving liability a bit more difficult. This can be the case when dangerous road conditions contributed to or fully caused your accident.

Dangerous Roads: Poor Road Design Or Driver Error In Poor Weather

There are typically two types of personal injury claims surrounding accidents caused by dangerous roads:

  • Government liability: If a road has a defective design or if it has not been properly maintained and results in your accident, you may have a claim against the government. These cases have a unique layer of complexity due to the government’s involvement as a defendant.
  • Driver negligence: If a road becomes dangerous due to adverse weather conditions, it is the responsibility of each motorist to adjust his or her driving to ensure safety. For example, if a driver speeds during a heavy rainfall, hydroplanes, and crashes into another vehicle, this driver is responsible for any resulting injuries.
