Charlotte Roadway Defect Attorney
Was your auto accident a result of a traffic violation — or was it because of a roadway defect? A detailed investigation into the circumstances of a car or truck accident sometimes reveals that some characteristic of the road or highway contributed to or caused the crash. Examples of road defects that sometimes cause car accidents include the following:
- Utility poles, fixtures or landscaping that block drivers’ view
- Inadequate shoulders on highways
- Poorly designed entry and exit ramps on highways
- Defective traffic signals
- Obstructed stop signs or yield signs
- Missing speed limit signs or other warning signs
- Improperly graded roadsides
Did a poorly managed construction zone contribute to or cause your North Carolina or South Carolina traffic accident because debris was in the road or construction vehicles were entering the highway slowly and unsafely? Maybe construction zone markings or signage was inadequate? Was water runoff poorly managed, resulting in ice patches or puddles on the highway?
If our Charlotte roadway defects lawyers take on a case where a road defect is the suspected cause of an accidental injury, we will investigate accident records on that particular road and analyze the data to determine patterns. In cases where a government body was well aware of a roadway defect and did not take action to correct it or warn the public, our clients’ cases for compensation may be strengthened.
Our personal injury law firm works closely with experts including roadway and traffic engineers as well as accident reconstruction specialists and human factors experts to help determine where negligence lies in car and truck accidents.
