When we think of automobile accidents, we invariably think of two cars colliding with each other, one driver being “at fault” or negligent, the other being the victim. However, auto accidents are not always a driver’s fault. Sometimes, a road is too dangerous for safe passage. Sometimes, a defect in the road can cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle. Sometimes a bridge is defective, a curve is too sharp. Sometimes a road is defectively built, hold too much water and can cause an unsuspecting driver to hydroplane out of control.
In most instances, in most states or counties, there are road commissions responsible for highway and road construction safety. In other words, these commissions are responsible for making our roads safe; when they fail in doing so, they are subject to liability and damages in a lawsuit, just like the “at fault” driver in a two car collision is.
This is a sub-specialty of an experienced auto accident attorney. If you find yourself injured as the result of an accident caused by a defect in a road or highway, call an experienced attorney who has handled these cases, successfully, in the past. Ask, specifically, whether the attorney has the necessary experience to handle a case against the government. Defective road cases are one of the few instances where an injured person can pursue litigation against a government entity (in these cases, a state or county road commission or similar entity). You will want to retain someone who has the knowledge and experience to handle the liability portion of the case as well as knowing what can be recovered in damages. Auto accident and personal injury experience, as well as prior litigation experience against government entities is vital.
Litigation is an almost overwhelming process. There are court appearances, mountains of paperwork and, usually, an experienced adjuster or attorney on the other side, representing the person or entity responsible for your injuries. Police reports, medical reports, witness statements, complaints, interrogatories, pleadings, discovery requests, motions, etc., must all be filed correctly and professionally. An experienced automobile accident attorney familiar with the details of this process and, who, at the same time, is a compassionate “partner” in handling the case, and helping you through a difficult process, makes a significant difference in your time of need. Most experienced attorneys won’t charge you anything unless they collect damages for you. This contingent fee arrangement assures you that the maximum effort will be made to obtain the largest settlement possible for you; after all, if you get nothing, your attorney gets nothing.
