The highway design and auto accident lawyers at the West Palm Beach
law firm of Murray Guari Trial Attorneys have been achieving exceptional results for Florida automobile accident victims for more than 20 years. Not all auto accidents are the result of driver error. In some cases, an auto accident is caused, in part, by highway design and highway construction. Nowhere is this truer than in South Florida where I-95 and the Florida Turnpike seem to be constant construction zones.
Highway design cases can get very complicated, as some government organizations and agencies responsible for highway construction are immune from liability. Also, the victim must prove that there was a known defect but it went uncorrected. Other possible cases involve unsafe construction zones on highways which failed to provide adequate warnings, or dangerous road conditions.
If a defect or dangerous condition is known or should have been known to the builder or designer and no corrective actions or repairs were made, you may be able to collect for compensation and punitive damages.
Examples of highway design cases include:
- Highway Shoulder Drop-offs
- Highway Bridge Designs
- Highway Construction Zone Accidents
- Roadway Maintenance
- Road Surface and Paving Materials
- Lack of Guard Rails
- Storm Drainage System Defects
- Other elements of road design and traffic flow
Proving fault in these cases requires that the auto accident lawyer has strong experience and the resources to thoroughly investigate the auto accident to determine if highway design or defect is partially responsible for the accident and injury.
