Highway Design

Some motor vehicle accidents are not caused by the drivers themselves, but because of unsafe highways and roadways. These cases require detailed investigation and usually require the use of specific highway experts to hold the responsible party accountable. Lack of proper signage and poorly designed roadways or bridges are common highway design claims. 

If you have been involved in an accident in which highway design may have been at fault, please call or email our attorneys for a free consultation.

When does an accident become a highway design claim?

Some factors which should trigger a client or an attorney to evaluate a highway design claim are:

  • Did the accident occur near a construction zone?
  • Did a vehicle travel off the roadway?
  • Did a vehicle cross the center median?
  • Did the driver complain of an unknown loss of control of vehicle?
  • Did the accident occur at an intersection with three (3) or more lanes of traffic for any one direction?
  • Was the intersection controlled by a Protective-Permissive, Left Turn signal?
  • Did the accident occur in a marked crosswalk?
  • Did the vehicle go through a guardrail or became impaled by the guardrail?
  • Did the vehicle go over a steep slope where there was no guardrail?

If the evidence of the hazardous road condition is lost, it becomes much more difficult to prove in court. The legal team at GLP Attorneys has been helping clients provide the proper evidence and obtain compensation for their injuries for over 30 years. Anyone whose injury was caused by a hazardous highway or road should speak with a personal injury attorney immediately.
