Defective Highway Design

Defective Highway Design

At Bishop Legal, we represent seriously injured accident victims and, in the tragic case of a fatal accident, we represent the deceased’s family in a wrongful death case. We look for all possible resources for our injured clients. In the event of a car or truck accident, this includes defective highway design and road maintenance defects.

Our attorneys have vast experienced handling complex, high damage cases. Because insurance limits often do not provide enough, we look at more than just the negligent driver, exploring all potential resources for our client to recover financially from the injuries and damages sustained resulting from a devastating accident.

Experienced Attorneys, Proven Results

We represent seriously injured clients in claims against builders and designers for shoddy design and construction that contributed to causing an accident. We also handle government liability cases as there are times when city, county, state, federal, and other government agencies need to be held accountable for negligence to protect the public from harm.

Our attorneys are experts in tort law and know what is necessary to prove a case. We work with engineers, accident reconstructionists, safety experts, and road construction professionals to identify violations of the law and unreasonably dangerous road conditions.

When Is Their Negligence?

It can be difficult for the public to identify when a roadway is unsafe. In evaluating defective highway design and maintenance, we look at factors that may include:

  • Defective or unsafe highway on-ramp metering systems
  • Unsafe freeway ramps
  • Poorly marked highway construction zones
  • Unsafe pavement conditions such as cracks, potholes, rough surfaces, bumps, or excessive gravel on highways
  • Dangerous or non-existent shoulders
  • Unsafe railroad crossings that result in a railroad crossing accident
  • Unsafe bridges or overpasses
  • Damaged or missing signage, such as a stop sign or yield sign
