Dangerous Roads And Highways

Sue The City For Compensation!

At the Manhattan law offices of Keogh Crispi, we protect the rights of motorists, cyclists and pedestrians who have been injured in accidents involving dangerous roadways across New York City. Whether your accident was the result of a design defect or poor road maintenance, we will make sure the party responsible for the unsafe conditions is held accountable.

When driving on a public road, you have the right to expect that your path will be safe and free of obstacles. If you are driving though a construction zone or past an accident, you expect proper warning. A sudden change in road conditions can lead to major accidents, which in turn, can lead to serious injuries.

What Characterizes A Defective Or Dangerous Road?

Defective or dangerous roads may not be properly marked or closed off, leaving motorists with little or no time to prepare for dangerous road conditions. It is essential that governmental agencies install proper signs on potentially dangerous stretches of road. From reducing speeds for a sharp curve to warning of lane shifts or detours for construction zones, when signs are in place, accidents can be prevented.

Our law firm steps forward and aggressively pursues the rights of motorists injured in accidents involving all of the following:

  • Road design defects
  • Lack of road maintenance
  • Failure to warn of a change in conditions
  • Detours and lane changes for construction zones

Roads can also undergo significant changes in different types of weather. The authorities must take these factors under consideration and design their roads accordingly.

If you have been in a car accident that was caused by a dangerous road or highway, you will be bringing a claim against the government.

There are important deadlines and prerequisites to filing a suit. We can make sure you are prepared and represented by a dedicated team.
