Phoenix Road Design Lawyers Provide Real Help for Car Accident Victims
When a defective road design in Arizona causes your injury, we can help
When roads and highways are poorly designed or defective, it puts our entire community at risk for harm. States and localities have a duty to provide roadways that are free from intrinsic dangers. In the Phoenix metro area and throughout Arizona, there are intersections, ramps and stretches of highway that drivers dread because they are especially hazardous. Visibility may be poor or safety guardrails may be missing. Some of these roadways were acceptably designed for one type of vehicle, but pose significant dangers for others. Frequent construction can also contribute to the treacherous conditions of these roads.
The aftermath of a serious auto accident is chaotic, and getting victims the medical attention they need must take priority. When serious injuries or a tragic fatality result, another important step is starting an investigation as quickly as possible — before evidence is lost forever. Our diligent Phoenix road design problem lawyers move quickly to start the fact-gathering process and determine causes of the crash. Numerous parties may be at fault for a defective roadway. At Plattner Verderame, P.C., you can trust us to identify all responsible parties and hold them accountable for your injuries.
Prompt investigation to assess crash causes and liability
Auto accidents often have more than one cause. Driver recklessness and distraction may have started the catastrophic chain of events, but roadway design and defects may have contributed to the collision and worsened the level of damages. Defective auto parts and numerous other factors can also play a part in causing a highway vehicle crash. These various possibilities make thorough investigation essential to successfully obtaining compensation after a serious crash.
