Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting For Our Clients in Their Time of Need

Dangerous Roadway Accidents in Agoura Hills

Injury Attorneys Serving the Greater Los Angeles Area

Not all accidents involve negligence by another motorist. Sometimes, crashes are caused because of the dangerous or defective design and construction of a roadway, highway, or street.

An experienced Los Angeles car accident lawyer can look at the facts surrounding your case and determine if you should pursue a claim based on a dangerous road condition. If you have been involved in an accident that you feel was caused by a defective road feature, you should discuss filing an injury claim with a lawyer at Effres & Associates today.

Types of Road Defects

A road may be dangerous due to a variety of reasons including the following:

  • A street may have inadequate illumination.
  • A highway may lack adequate or sturdy guardrails.
  • An intersection may lack a stoplight or any other traffic control feature.
  • A road may be too narrow or have dangerous curves.
  • A road may have steep drop-offs.
  • A road may have inadequate warning signs.
  • A road may not allow for the proper drainage of water accumulation.

In many of these cases, the responsibility for maintaining the street or highway in proper condition lies with the state administration, or with local city or county agencies. When an accident is caused by any of the above-mentioned factors, it is important to identify the party that was responsible for constructing or maintaining the feature that caused the injury.

For instance, maintenance of highways is typically the responsibility of the state administration, and if you were injured as the result of an unsafe condition on a highway, your accident claim may include the state administration. A Los Angeles injury attorney at our firm is able to identify the parties responsible for your injuries after evaluating your case.

Filing a Claim against the Government

For obvious reasons, filing a claim against the government bodies in charge of maintenance, construction, and control of roads is challenging, and typically these agencies will defend their cases by blaming the accident on driver error. Your attorney must establish that there was a breach of the government agency’s duty to construct and maintain a safe road.

To discuss if you have grounds for a viable claim against a government body because of an accident caused by a dangerous road, discuss your case with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney at Effres & Associates. Do not delay because the time period within which to notify the government entity of your claim is limited. We offer our services for residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.
