Arizona Defective Road Design Lawyers

Most car crashes are caused entirely by careless driving. Some involve fault on parties beyond the drivers. In crashes involving serious injury or wrongful death, it is critical to determine whether the road design or other roadway defects contributed to the collision.

Our attorneys have the skill and resources necessary to investigate the most complex crashes, documenting the scene, preserving evidence, and retaining experts to determine whether a defective road design or poor maintenance contributed to a collision.

Highways and city streets can play a significant role in a crash. These cases may involve:

  • Defective road design
  • Dangerous intersections
  • Failure to warn drivers of dangerous road conditions
  • Shoulder drop-offs
  • Missing guardrails
  • Poor visibility
  • Improper lane markers

Preserving Evidence Following Car Crashes

Following any accident resulting in serious injuries, it is imperative that an attorney act promptly to preserve evidence necessary to investigate future claims, including roadway design. This includes documenting the scene, interviewing witnesses, and securing the vehicle at the earliest possible time. These steps are necessary to develop the facts to prove liability and assist expert witnesses in rendering important opinions as to the cause of the collision.

Injured Party Must Act Promptly to Comply with Notice of Claim Requirements

For this reason, you should immediately see to the protection of this evidence and retain a lawyer who is experienced in tire defect cases to represent you. He or she will attend to the preservation of all the important evidence and employ the experts to examine it and render important opinions as to the cause of the failure.

In car crash cases with serious injuries or death, time is of the essence.
