Defective Roads / Sidewalk
Michigan and Co-Counsel Nationwide
Defective Road and Sidewalk Lawyer
Cars traveling the highway, children riding their bikes, motorcyclists relying on smooth pavement– all of these everyday situations involve residents relying on the safety of area roads and sidewalks. Unfortunately, the governmental agencies that have jurisdiction over these roadways sometimes fail to keep them free of dangers. Every day, serious accidents and injuries are caused by improperly designed roads and streets that are not adequately maintained. If you or a loved one has been hurt in this type of accident, the personal injury lawyer at GorenLaw are here to help.
Types of road problems:
- Defects such as potholes
- Uneven sidewalk slabs
- Insufficient or missing road signs, signals or lights
- Other problems such as visual obstructions
- inadequate shoulders
Accidents caused by faulty roads can present themselves like other common incidents – a fall off a bike, a slip and fall accident, or a vehicle crash – but with proper investigation and the assistance of trained experts, the result of an accident can be much deserved and much needed financial compensation. At GorenLaw, our defective roadway lawyers will thoroughly research your accident and explore all possible causes. If defective roads or sidewalks are found to have caused your accident, the local or regional or state governmental agency that has jurisdiction over the roadway should be held accountable for your losses.
In many places, there are laws regarding when victims or their loved ones must notify the applicable governmental agency about the road or sidewalk problem that caused their accident. The time limits and deadlines are often very short–less than those for other types of accidents. For this reason, it’s more important than ever that the lawyers at GorenLaw be contacted as soon as possible.
