Highway Design lawsuits typically arise when individuals are injured in an auto accident caused by defects in the highway design. Those involved in an accident related to defective highway design may be entitled to compensation for
medical bills, pain and suffering. Injured parties may wish to file a personal injury or product liability lawsuit to seek damages, often due to the following issues:

  1. Poor road design
  2. Defective guard rails
  3. Improper signs or misplaced construction alerts
  4. Road drop offs
  5. Faulty traffic signals
  6. Wrong or misplaced road signs

When a highway contains major defects, serious accidents can occur, including collisions between motorists, SUV rollovers, and crashes into construction equipment.

We are not afraid to go against local, city, and state entities so our clients can obtain justice.
