If you were seriously injured while traveling down the road in your vehicle, negligent road design may have been the cause. Accidents caused by inadequate signage, lack of warning lights, poor lighting, improper drainage, defective traffic control signs, faded highway lines or even unsafe, inadequate or nonexistent guardrails could all be considered negligent road design. Improper maintenance of the road such as loose debris, gravel, potholes, construction refuse, or cement cracks can also be considered negligent road design.
To prove that negligent road design contributed to an accident requires a personal injury lawyer experienced in this particular issue. Motor vehicle accidents caused by bad road design can be complex cases involving state and municipal codes, and several responsible parties may be involved.
