For the most part, vehicle accidents are caused by drivers. However, sometimes the fault is in a poorly designed or constructed road. Something that looks insignificant can cause major damage – both to your car and to your health.
Attorney Dax Jones understands how difficult it can be to prove that a design defect in a highway caused an accident in Sammamish. He knows it’s tough to prove government negligence led to a serious problem, and then to damages. Nonetheless, despite the difficulty of this kind of case, he has experienced much success in getting clients results and compensation in these situations.
Highway Design Defects in Sammamish
Frequently, the clearest signal that a highway defect was the cause of an accident is a recurring pattern of accidents happening in that location. When a government agency ignores that pattern, it can be held liable for inaction resulting in damages.
Defects in roads can include:
Poor or insufficient drainage, leading to pooling water
Potholes and other uneven pavement
Lack or improper placement of signage or stoplights
Lack of guardrails or other safety mechanisms
Failure to clear or warn of a hazard
