Dangerous and Defective Roads

Miami Dangerous Road Lawyerdangerous and defective roads

Federal and Florida laws aim to protect motorists from hazards caused by dangerous and defective roads. For this reason, they place certain requirements on construction companies fixing Florida roads. They also require certain warnings, guardrails and gradients — all in the name of safety.

So, when a motor vehicle accident occurs on South Florida roads, the Miami car accident lawyers at Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., conduct a thorough investigation into road safety. We partner with accident reconstruction and road safety experts who can help us understand how relevant facts and laws may have contributed to your accident.

Often, we find that road hazards are to blame for car accidents and truck accidents. There are many different ways that roads can cause injuries to motorists:

  • Defectively designed roads
  • Missing or malfunctioning traffic signals
  • Missing or malfunctioning road signs
  • Gradients (slopes) that are too steep
  • Highways that have not been maintained properly
  • Improperly placed or marked construction zones
  • Construction equipment left in the highway

It takes a long time for highway traffic to come to a complete stop. When construction zones are not properly marked or when dangerous road conditions appear out of nowhere, traffic can rarely stop in time. This can lead to deadly accidents on Florida's roads.

At Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., our lawyers help obtain much-needed compensation for people who have been injured due to substandard road conditions. This assistance can help families get back on their feet after perilous conditions on Florida’s highways cause injury.

If you or someone you know has been injured due to dangerous road conditions, bringing a lawsuit may afford compensation to reimburse you for wages lost as a result of injury and the cost of medical care and physical therapy. In addition, a personal injury settlement can help to offset the funeral expenses of a loved one and provide noneconomic damages for pain and suffering.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
