Defective & Dangerous Roads

At The Ammons Law Firm, we have helped victims of dangerous and defective roadways throughout the United States. Our attorneys have handled cases involving missing guardrails, unaddressed roadside erosion, excessive potholes, and other common and less-common road hazards.

Car Accidents Caused by Dangerous Roads

Proper roadway design, construction, and maintenance are important for public safety. Unsafe and negligent road conditions can lead to devastating car 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, our Houston car accident attorneys are well-versed in car crashes caused by dangerous roads. 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.

If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a vehicle accident, call our Houston car accident attorneys today for a free consultation.

Proving Negligence in Car Accidents Caused by Defective Roads

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 condition, which, in turn, caused the accident that left them injured and 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 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 right away to discuss your legal rights and options.
