Charleston Dangerous Roadway Accident Attorney
Injuries Caused by Defective Roads, Improper Signage, and More Throughout West Virginia
Damaged roads can be dangerous roads. Potholes, loose gravel, and leftover construction debris can leave roadways unsafe for motorists. Even when the roads are clear, defective road design, missing guardrails, or improper signage can also cause serious injuries.
At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, we provide skilled legal representation for people injured in all types of motor vehicle accidents — including those caused by dangerous roadways. If you have been injured, or someone you love has been killed in a car accident caused by dangerous roadways, we can help you.
We have extensive experience handling personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits for clients.
Oftentimes, a single car accident will have several different causes. Driver inattentiveness is frequently a strong contributing factor. However, the severity of any injuries caused by driver inattentiveness may be aggravated by certain external factors, such as an improperly marked roadway or a highway with a missing guardrail.
In any motor vehicle accident, our attorneys will carefully examine the circumstances and consider all potential sources of liability. If there is evidence that the injuries were caused or aggravated by improper care of roadways, we will help you pursue legal claims against the city or county responsible for maintaining the streets.
It is important to note that, in some cases, you may not be able to file a suit against the government for dangerous road conditions. Many municipal governments enact specific legislation to shield them from civil claims for negligence. However, if there is the potential for a viable personal injury or wrongful death claim, our attorneys will work tirelessly to pursue this claim and protect your interests.
