Miami Beach Poor Road Design
Road design and bad roads are a factor in 52.7% of fatal traffic accidents across the country, according to a University of Chicago study. Have you been injured in a traffic accident in Miami Beach or South Florida caused by poor road design or road dangers? In many cases, it can be difficult to tell. You may not notice that the road was too narrow to be safe or you may not know that a road has a long history of road accidents due to poor design. In many cases, it takes an engineer or other professional to investigate the causes of the accident in order to find out whether road design was an issue.

Ultimately, states and local governments are the ones responsible for the roads. If poor road design has caused your car accident, these are the agencies that can be held accountable for your losses, damages, and injuries. Unfortunately, holding government entities accountable for their actions is challenging for a number of reasons:
- Government agencies are powerful entities and have teams of attorneys on their side
- Government agencies have nearly unlimited resources to protect themselves in a court of law
- There are special statutes of limitations as well as limits of liability that apply to government agencies and governments
Unfortunately, pursuing a government or locality in a legal claim is often more challenging than pursuing an individual or even a large company. Government entities are protected in numerous ways, and it often takes working with an experienced and competent personal injury attorney in order to go toe to toe with these entities. Even if it is obvious that the government was negligent in providing a safe road surface for you and if it is obvious that this negligence led to your injuries, proving this in court will often be a challenge. Working with a personal injury attorney can improve your chances that you will succeed in the courtroom.Do You Need to Speak to a Personal Injury Attorney?
