Dangerous Streets Or Poor Highway Design And Personal Injury Attorney
Help For Those Injured By Hazardous Roads
Hazardous and dangerous roads cause countless deaths each year in California and across the U.S. The danger of the highway or road can be easily overlooked by law enforcement when they are making a report on the cause of the accident. Often the report will state that the driver was at fault, when actually the accident was caused by unsafe factors on the road or in the road’s construction. These factors may include: lack of shoulder and guardrails, potholes, unsafe road surfaces, sand, objects in the road and poor visibility.For someone who has been injured, the best thing to do is to immediately take photos of the site of the crash.
Some factors to consider, which should trigger a client or an attorney to evaluate a potential dangerous condition of a public property 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 the vehicle?
Did the accident occur at an intersection with three (3) or more lanes of through traffic for any one direction?
Was the intersection control 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?
Was a pedestrian struck in a public parking lot, such as at the DMV?
If the evidence of the hazardous road is lost, it becomes much more difficult to prove in court. The legal team at Nguyen Lawyers has been helping clients provide the proper evidence to courts and obtain compensation for their injuries for many years. Anyone injured by a hazardous highway or road, should speak with a personal injury attorney immediately.
