Accidents Caused By Unsafe Highway Conditions Or Maintenance
When dangerous road conditions lead to serious truck wrecks, many folks find their lives changed forever. Even in cases where the truck driver’s negligence is the main cause, it may still be possible to take action against the government entity responsible for maintaining the road.
Thoroughly Investigating Your Case
At the Carter Law Offices our Kansas City unsafe highway accident attorneys also take action against the people responsible for unsafe highway conditions. As experienced lawyers, we know that there are many different ways that highway conditions can put drivers at risk:
- Gradient is too steep
- Construction not marked
- Ice, snow and other weather conditions not timely maintained
- Potholes and other wear and tear issues
- Failure to put in place proper guardrails
- Improperly divided highways
- Improperly designed intersections
In truck accident cases, we investigate whether road conditions could have been a factor in the wreck. We often work with experts to conduct a thorough analysis. If we believe that the road is a factor, we will prosecute your claim against the government entities that are responsible.
Arbitration of Truck Wreck Cases
Cases against government entities often go to arbitration to be decided. Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution where the final decision is made by an arbitrator — not a jury or judge.
At the Carter Law Offices, we are experienced trial lawyers, but we also know how to get results in arbitration. We use proven strategies to achieve the best possible results for our clients when dangerous and defective road conditions are involved in an accident.
