Lawyer Fighting For Those Harmed By Hazardous Roads In Chicagoland
With so many miles of highway and local roads in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, any hazardous road condition can put thousands of people at risk. If you have been hurt due to a dangerous highway or other hazardous road, you should seek legal counsel to determine whether a claim against another driver, the municipality in charge of maintaining the road, the manufacturer of road material or any other party can be held liable for the damages you have suffered.
What is a hazardous road? The term covers any number of obstacles, design flaws and unanticipated obstructions:
- Road damage, including cracks, holes, grooves, loose materials and potholes
- Debris, including anything left behind from construction or a prior accident
- Poor signage, especially on sudden hills, turns, intersections and rotaries
- Inadequate safety measures, including no shoulder on the road or a lack of guardrails
Bad weather can also turn a poorly designed road into a dangerous surface, especially if the road is not properly banked or raked and precipitation renders it slick.
Dangerous roads are especially common in one-car crashes, although unsafe driving conditions can easily lead to multiple-vehicle wrecks as well. Finding out exactly what happened can be a complex affair, which is why you will want to work with an experienced personal injury attorney from the beginning of this process.
