Handling Cases Caused By Dangerous Road Design And Maintenance
Car accidents could be caused by things other than driver errors. Another contributing factor to roadway accidents and injuries is the improper design or maintenance of highways. Governments or other parties could be held responsible for creating dangerous conditions on Washington roadways.
For more than 40 years, the law firm of Harpold Thomas, PC, has represented victims of personal injury accidents. We serve clients throughout Seattle, South King County and North Pierce County.
For every client injured in a motor vehicle accident, we closely review the facts to determine if the accident was caused by defective design or maintenance of roads. If our Kent road construction accident attorneys determine that you have a case against the government, we will help you seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
Defective Design and Maintenance
We have experience handling cases involving hazards such as:
- Curves too sharp
- Improper materials used in construction of roads
- Improper or absent signage on roads
- Lack of guardrails
- Insufficient drainage of roads
- Poor road maintenance (including removal of water, snow and ice)
- Negligent winter preparation
- Failure to respond to known dangerous conditions on roads
- Road construction dangers
The government is responsible for meeting standards for highway safety. With highway design defect cases, we look for areas where the state or counties have failed to provide safe roadways for the public.
We are dedicated to helping injured victims and families of loved ones lost due to wrongful death. We provide personal service and attention and seek to maximize the compensation our clients deserve.
