Defective Roadways Causing Accidents

The accident lawyers who work at the Cochran Firm’s many offices across America have seen how negligence can severely affect your life. When someone cuts a corner or takes a shortcut on the road, you can find yourself with a significant injury and staggering medical expenses.

Some of the most commonly overlooked causes of accidents are defective roadways. If the street on which you’re driving is unsafe, you and the other drivers on the road are in danger, even if you are all doing everything right and driving safely.

Our accident lawyers have experience with defective products, and we’ve seen how roads can fail their drivers. Common forms of defective roadways include:

  • Potholes
  • Poorly designed roads (blind corners, sharp turns, inadequate lane width, for example)
  • Sharp shoulder drop-offs
  • Debris that has not been removed
This is obviously not an exhaustive list. If you’ve been hurt in a collision that was caused by a defective roadway, our accident lawyers might be able to pursue compensation from:

  • The construction company or contractor who built the road
  • The agency charged with maintaining the road
  • Companies responsible for warning signage
You have a right to pursue justice and compensation for your injuries.
