Dangerous Roads

If you were hurt in a car accident that was a result of a dangerous or defective road, you should be able to fight for compensation. There are many types of poor road conditions that can lead to car accidents-from poorly designed roads to those that are poorly maintained.

These road conditions include the following:

  • Dangerous Intersections
  • Fixed Objects in the Middle of the Road
  • Ice Patches
  • Poor Signage or Bad Line Striping
  • Potholes
  • Shoulder Drop-Off
  • Slippery Surfaces

Building a Dangerous Roads Case

If you got into a crash on a dangerous road, there could be multiple parties that can be held liable, such as the other driver and the city (for not repairing the road, putting up a warning sign, etc.). Whether you got into a crash because of missing guardrails or an eroded road, you can fight back. If we can help prove that the road conditions caused damage to your car and caused you to sustain injuries, you might be able to obtain a successful outcome.

We are prepared to investigate every aspect of your case and prove that:

  • The agency / company responsible for maintaining the road was negligent; or
  • The city failed to adequately warn drivers of a potential hazard.

The Illinois Department of Transportation has developed procedures for submitting claims of property damage, including unreported road debris / conditions. It is important to retain qualified legal representation so you can meet all deadlines in a timely manner and build the strongest case possible.
