Most motor vehicle crashes are caused by drivers. But occasionally, a poorly designed road or highway is the culprit, and serious injuries can result.
Bellevue highway defect attorney Dax Jones grasps the complexities of proving that a highway design defect caused an accident and a government entity was negligent in not correcting the problem. He has helped clients obtain compensation in these difficult cases.
Often the best sign that a highway defect caused an accident is a pattern of accidents occurring at the same location. When a government agency ignores such a pattern, it may be held liable for its inaction.
Defects can include:
Improper drainage and water pooling
Potholes and uneven pavement
Lack or improper placement of a sign or stoplight
Lack of a guardrail or other safety device
A failure to clear or warn of a road hazard
Holding responsible parties accountable
