Dangerous 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 & Estrada, 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.
- 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 & Estrada, 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.Contact a Miami Dangerous Road Attorney
