Unsafe Roads, Barriers, Guardrails, Construction Zones
Unsafe roads can and do cause serious car accidents, but it can be difficult to determine who or what was at fault. A prompt and thorough investigation is essential, particularly because the scene of the accident can change quickly. And in some cases you may be required to notify a city of a defective condition shortly after a wreck.
Personal Injury Lawyers
A roadway defect may be a problem that was designed or built into the road, or due to improper roadway maintenance. The car accident attorneys at Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis have the experience and knowledge to effectively represent clients injured because of roadway defects.
- Construction zones can present significant hazards to passing cars and trucks. Without appropriate signage and barriers, the hazards can cause serious accidents. In many cases, the contractor or state highway department is responsible for creating the danger.
- The failure to maintain roads can mean dangerous lane crossovers, broken guardrails, unprotected medians, or shoulders that are too deep. Sudden changes in road surfaces or depths can lead to rollovers, blowouts, and crashes.
- When roadway defects cause an accident, it is important to investigate quickly before the defect is fixed. Branches might be cleared from in front of signs, inadequate signs might be replaced, or uneven pavement might be repaired. Our investigators make sure the site is photographed and documented quickly.
