Unsafe road claims are complicated, and Bill Coats employs his 20 years of experience to manage these complex cases. For many, the process is made more difficult because the government agencies that oversee the road systems employ huge insurance companies with defense attorneys that aggressively defend claims. Acquiring all necessary documentation and reports is a challenging process, requiring a strong understanding of the needs of each injured client and each claim.
If you have been injured in an accident caused in part by unsafe road or highway conditions, you need an experienced attorney who has handled these unique claims. Contact Bill Coats to get your questions answered and find out more about your options.
While most accidents are caused by the behaviors of drivers, some accidents are caused wholly or in part by unsafe roads and highways. Some common road safety issues include:
- missing or confusing signs;
- potholes or deteriorating road surfaces;
- lack of adequate water drainage;
- unsafe road construction zones;
- improperly graded curves;
- narrow roads and steep drop offs;
- dangerous intersections;
- missing median dividers.
Unsafe road conditions can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles, resulting in accidents and injuries. Even if another driver causes an accident, an unsafe road condition can contribute to the crash, and the agency responsible for maintaining roads may be held liable.
