Houston Defective & Dangerous Road Attorneys
Representing Clients Nationwide against Municipal & Government Agencies
Proper roadway design, construction, and maintenance is important for public safety. Unsafe and negligent road conditions can lead to devastating accidents that cause serious bodily injury, property damage, and even death. When this occurs, victims and the surviving family members of those wrongfully killed may be able to pursue legal action against the liable party or parties.
At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, our Houston defective road attorneys are well-versed in this niche area of law. We understand how to prove that negligence in road design, construction, or maintenance led to your accident—and we know how to hold the liable entities accountable for your damages. With over 100 years of combined experience and more than $1 billion recovered for our clients, we have the skill and knowledge needed to aggressively advocate for you.
Proving Negligence in Defective Road Claims
Defective and dangerous road claims are some of the most complex and difficult personal injury cases to pursue. Plaintiffs must prove that negligence led to the unsafe road conditions which, in turn, caused the accident that left them injured and/or suffering damages. Furthermore, in many cases involving local or state government entities, plaintiffs will need to follow a very specific process in order to bring a claim.
In order to prove negligence and, therefore, potentially bring a claim, you will need to show that:
- A certain individual, company, or other entity was responsible for designing, constructing, or maintaining the given roadway
- The liable party knew of or reasonably should have known of the hazardous road condition that led to your accident
- The liable party failed to take the proper and necessary measures to fix or otherwise address the hazardous road condition
- As a result of the existence of the hazardous road condition, you were involved in an accident that caused you property damage, personal injury, and/or damages
If the party responsible for designing, constructing, or maintaining the road is a government entity, you may have a difficult time pursuing a claim and will likely need to meet certain requirements prior to filing a lawsuit. Additionally, you will likely have a much shorter time in which to file your claim. We recommend that you contact The Ammons Law Firm LLP right away to discuss your legal rights and options.
