Lafayette Highway Defects Attorneys
Because there is so much construction on Louisiana highways, drivers may think that roads they use are safe. However, accidents caused by defects in highways and streets happen every day, causing serious injury or death. These accidents are the result of negligence in road design, failure to repair dangerous roadways, or carelessness in installing warning signs. People injured in accidents caused by these conditions may be eligible to file a claim for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs of a serious injury.
Our Lafayette accident injury lawyers have more than 20 years of experience helping people obtain payment for motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent or careless conduct. Defects in roadway design and maintenance are often the result of negligence. Our clients have received compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs of an accident caused by negligent defects in the highway. Contact our law office to learn how we can help you with payment for injuries caused by defective roads and streets.
If you have been injured because of a defect in the road or street, you need an attorney who has handled such cases before.
Neglected Highway Repair Impacts Drivers’ Safety
We can help people obtain compensation for accidents caused by:
- Shoulder drop-off
- Design defects allowing water to pool on the road
- Inadequate signage for construction zones
- Failure to announce a stop sign or stop light
- Failure to repair a broken stop light
- Failure to install speed bumps
- Insufficient notice of lane closure
- Objects left on the road
These defects cause driver over-correction, hydroplaning, failure to stop, unannounced merging, excessive speed for the conditions, and other actions that can lead to accidents.
