Poor road design can result in a number of accidents, including:
- Intersection accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Right of way accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Single vehicle accidents
- Chain reaction collisions
- Motorcycle crashes
Poor road design claims are very complicated in part because the defendants tend to be powerful entities, such as large construction companies, municipalities, and government agencies. These defendants usually have the law on their side. Some government agencies, for example, have legal rights to avoid some types of liability. In addition, there is a statute of limitations which protects these defendants because it allows plaintiffs only very limited amount of time to file a claim. In addition, government agencies and other large defendants are usually protected by powerful insurance companies, legislators, and entire teams of powerful attorneys.
It can be daunting to try to go toe to toe with these types of defendants, even if you know you have a strong case. It can be especially frustrating to be injured due to poor road design or poor road repairs only to find that you have trouble getting justice and compensation because the defendant happens to be powerful.
