Coral Springs Poor Road Design

In Florida and Coral Springs, car accidents in some cases are caused not just by at-fault drivers, but also by road hazards and poor road design. When engineers and city planners fail to use sturdy materials or fail to use adequate signage or markings, accidents can result. Poor road design can cause accidents not just on roads, but also on bridges, overpasses, exit ramps, and other infrastructure.

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have seen many cases where potholes, uneven road surfaces, malfunctioning traffic lights, broken guardrails, or other design and maintenance issues have caused catastrophic accidents and injuries. The attorneys at our full service law firm believe that in these types of cases, injured parties deserve every protection available under the law and feel that liable parties should be held accountable.

  • The cost of emergency room treatment and a hospital stay
