Holding Government Agencies Responsible For Dangerous Roads

The Van Blois Law Firm has extensive experience and an excellent track record of outstanding results in proving public entities liable for dangerous roads and unsafe conditions of public property. Whenever there is a severe injury or fatality occurring in an accident on a roadway, an inspection of the roadway should be promptly undertaken by knowledgeable highway design experts.

Dangerous roads occur when there is a bad design, poor maintenance or failure to correct a dangerous condition. Police investigations rarely indicate a dangerous road is a cause of an accident. If you are involved in a severe vehicular accident, you should promptly contact an experienced roadway design lawyer to determine if a cause of the accident was a bad roadway design, maintenance problem or dangerous condition. The physical evidence at the accident site must be documented and preserved. There is an entire body of the law relating to public entity cases and proving government liability is legally complicated.
